The first snail shot was just taken using the cameras own lens.The closer shot, and the other ones too were taken with the DCR150. I had to zoom out quite a bit on the snail closeup to get it all in the shot.The midge larvae are so small that shot was cropped...but not by a great amount.

Appreciate the feedback.

Great shots Mark, the snail is really cool! I don't ever remember seeing snails around here but sometimes after a big rain we could find slugs on the sidewalk.

Thanks Vaiboy. We get plenty of both snails and slugs. I love the patterns on the snail shells.

Grandson Wallace says wonderful. He has never seen a snail up close like this before. He is 10 years old and loves to catch insects, especially small reptiles and amphibians.
