Delightful!! I've never seen a snail's "face" so up-close before. The lips are really funny. Congratulations on your finalist, and good luck!

Hi Robin and Nancy
Thanks a lot for commenting on the picture. Just to avoid any disappointments, when you close up on a snail like this: It is a fantastic sight, the eyes really are visible, but the mouth was created I Photoshop, so the picture would get the humoristic touch, that could qualify to the category. I think, that the real mouth of snails is located underneath, and is more or less circular. Maybe I should try to get that detail next time I come across one of theese little creatures ... if I can catch it!
