Trailblazer by Aztil Trailblazer by Aztil
Snails are one of the earliest known types of animals in the world. There is evidence that they evolved more than 600 million years ago.

As a snail moves it leaves behind a trail of slime. This allows it to easily move across any type of terrain without injuring its body. They arenít able to hear at all so they rely on their sense of touch to interact with each other. They use their sense of smell to help them find food.

Likely to be more to follow....

I love this picture. The reflection is so clear. I am just amazed by how you got the background to be so clear and neutral and just the attention on the snail. This is an awesome shot. The reflection and detail of the snail are remarkable. I am so curious how you got this shot.

The depth of field (aperture) reduces whats in focus... The fore and background smooth out this way... Laid the camera on the table, focussed and then slide it forwards and backwards to get the focus perfect... :D

Great capture! I'm not sure have I ever seen a photo of a snail this close.
I like the detail pattern of the snail's skin.
Thank you for sharing this photo and thank you also for the information about snails! :D
