Default Garden Snail

This will appear about 4x lifesize on a standard monitor. I used my 50mm with a 4 diopter close up lens. Comments welcomed.

Very nice image, really like the composition of this one. Only thing I would do is smooth out the background a little, just me.

Another shot that shows off its eyes a bit better.
