The snail wakes - stretches out - life is too short to mope it reminds itself, and even though the sun is not yet shining does its best to slither forwards.
Here is another brilliant photo of a snail by Sandra Johnson. She found it on the west coast of Sweden. It looks as if it keeps its brains on the outside of its head.
I am pleased to report that Sandra has started her own blog 'Cathy Timberlake' which will, in due course, feature some more of her excellent photos and also, I expect some of her very funny self-effacing anecdotes.
