Thank you Sharon, who's message showed up on another page.

LOL, Gary! No pay and no model release form either. Thanks!

Thank you Charlene, Stephen, Colette, and Janice. It is so small that I didn't know it was a snail until it poped it's little head out. I found it on a plastic bottle I picked up out of my yard. I went to rinse it off and saw the little guy moving. Lucky for him or he'd of been drain food!

I took a few shots and put him in my garden. The dice was to really show how small it is. Cute aint it! #280822

In all honesty Charlene, I feel that other people put in photos much better than this one. I kind of threw my hands in the air, snickered and thought, "what ever". Thank you for your kind words and support. I'm always amazed and humored by some of the final picks!(wink, grin) #300046
