Silly Saturday: Sluggish steps

Although my post-surgical improvement is steady and noticeable, I’d like to have it progressing much more rapidly, and that part of me can’t help but view it as going at a snail’s pace. In keeping with that, and to keep a toe in with this here poor, neglected NC Snail 20372website (I still can’t sit at my computer comfortably for very long), here’s a shot of a little kindred soul that I made back when I was visiting my brother in North Carolina about seven weeks ago. I hope to be back in the old groove again soon.

    Slow and Steady wins the Race.

    But who wants to come last :D Console yourself with the thought that someone’s got to do it.

    Great image.

  2. Wow!!! That is an amazing shot Gary. It’s worth the wait to see photos as good as that.

    Striking image, Gary, wonderful composition, love the attitude, colours and textures of the leaf, and the snail then raises the whole thing to further heights. I wish you a speedy recovery, my friend. A

  4. We just don’t bounce back as quickly as we’d like with advancing years, do we? Guess that doesn’t help much. As Vicki says above…slow and steady. Not much choice without risking injury and reversal.
    This is a fine image. I’ve never been able to capture a snail or slug with the antennae extended like this so am quite envious. Plus, the detail just pops.

      It was, to a large extent, a matter of luck. It was likely trying to escape from my intense scrutiny as rapidly as possible across that rough terrain, and so had its eyestalks extended to the max. Thanks for the compliment, Steve, and I hope you have a grand New Year!
