Default Snail, Insect and Flower

I took the snail as he or she was walking across my window late at night. I thought it an unusual shot so i grabbed it. Don't see many snails from this position i guess.
Not seen one of these black and white flies before so don't know what it is, any ideas?
My sunflower which attracts so many bees and we need bees so much that i am planting more sunflowers next year as they love them and attract so many of them.

Yes, no one would have shot a snail in this angle. To me, with the sky (?) in the background, it looks like a UFO!

lol, see what you mean Raghu. it was late at night so the sky was black but it was a good contrast to the snail.

Very nice angle on #1 eysha! As somebody else already pointed out, it reminds me of something floating in space! #2 seems to have too much shadow on the bee. Perhaps a fill flash could have helped.
