Snail’s Pace

This wonderful little snail slithered ever so slowly across my lawn the other day as I weeded the veggie garden. I watched it for a long while before deciding I definitely had the time to grab my camera from the house. That snail was not going anywhere fast.

The stretching and reaching it did to move itself along was fascinating and considering its mode of transport it actually moved at a decent pace. I was most amazed when I reached too close to move a blade of grass to see it retract its tentacles into itself!! The photos don’t do it justice. The wonder of Mother Nature.
