Default Just a snail

Few moments ago, when I was coming home from work, this little fella was at my door

It was my model for a photo shoot ... and I took 72 photos in a few minutes

He changed my sense of speed... everything is relative... this little creature can be really fast when we are struggling to focus with an inverted lens

No animals were harmed during this photo session. When finished, he returned to the garden in front of the building

Really interesting series, Rui! What a strange texture on him. I love the shot with the one eye in focus

It was a real challange to get that photo. Hard to understand when the eye were in focus and he wasn't stand still

But it was o lot of fun photographing this little guy

I like the eye, just wondering how he saw things like your camera.
