David Perry, the judge for the August photo contest at Gardening Gone Wild asked us to get down on our knees and show them something they haven’t seen in quite the same way before.
I was encouraged to submit a cool hummingbird shot (thanks, Maureen!) but two things were wrong; first, it was taken a couple of weeks ago, (not with this assignment in mind) and second it was kind of a panic shot taken from above, not a thoughtful shot taken from knee level or lower. For my first GGW entry, I want to follow the rules!
As I sat under the Red Umbrella pondering, I saw this fellow making his way across the garden, and knew that he would be my subject. A common brown snail, not very sexy, or is he? Well, I groveled before him, so I bet he's feeling pretty special (from his, um, new home in the neighbor's ivy!)
