A #30DaysWild themed post. So wildlife photography isn’t always about photographing birds, squirrels, and other bigger creatures. Sometimes you have to slow things down to a snails pace (see what I did there? Sorry but not sorry, lol) and get low down to see the smaller creatures that we share our beautiful planet with.
Snails was my muse of choice for day 3 (3rd June) of my 30 Days Wild photo challenge. The weather had been miserable as it had rained most of the day and was much cold than we’ve been used to the last few weeks. So I wasn’t motivated to go much further than our garden in search of nature. The rain had brought all the snails to life. I know most people aren’t a fan of snails (especially if your a gardener), but all animals and insects etc serve a purpose. Like people we should all learn to get along and live side by side. I hadn’t realised that snails are a fan of bird seed or at least this little fellow is. The bird seed that we’d left on our garden wall had clearly attracted him away from our flowers. There was also another perched on our bird table, I’m sure that’s a risky venture when your a snail and he’s bound to be a birds next meal. The circle of life.
