    Great shots – most startling backdrop 🙂 My favourite is the last one 😀

    The backdrop is a begonia, which has somewhat collapsed under its own weight. I was intersted in the transparency of the snail, which I presume is to do with age. It was certainly quite small.

    I sat in wait for that last shot. With snails it's just about possible to spot their movement and get there first 😉

    Some models just can't be rushed. Such prima donnas.
