Bass Harbor, Maine
Found on the side of a building while walking along a trail. It was so foggy that day that dew was everywhere. I was astonished this dew drop hadn't fallen off the shell yet.
Wonderful capture! You have a really goo eye!

@Tracy: Hehe! I am not sure if you meant "good" or were playing off the fact that the snail is "goo-ey!" ;0) Thanks for the comment!
A wonderful shot! Poetic and colourful, too!

@MadScientist: Thanks! I can't take credit for the color...the red brick was a perfect backdrop.
Beautiful sighting and a great capture!

@ClaudiaBCN: Thanks Claudia...the focus was actually quite difficult. It was very foggy and gray this day and the light was horrible. I appreciate the comment!
Very nice. I like the pink color !

@Chris: Thanks Chris! The subject called for it and the wide open lens helped with the low light ;0)
Beautiful DOF and details. I like the droplet on the shell.

With their love for rain, no way we can guess when snails cry or sweat........ :))
Great colors here !

Really nice snail; the red brick and dew on it is a great touch. You got in a lot of detail.

What an unusual one, Tracey! "Found things" are amongst my favourite subjects, and this is beautifully done.
