Does he have any idea .......

...... of his place in the big, wide world?


I saw him as I took out the bins this morning and ran back inside to get my camera - even though the weather was wet and horrible - and proceeded to get down on my knees and elbows to get the right angle!

Don't really know why I ran though. It's not as though he was going to suddenly break the speed record for crossing the drive, was it?

I LOVE IT!

The running was out of pure excitment rather than because you might miss it!

That is smashing, Bobs!!! It's amazing how many times I find myself practically prone on the ground...

I really like this shot...the contrast if wonderful. They don't moved very fast do they...not unless they see you coming. I've done my share of photographing these slippery characters too. I hope you don't mind me leaving a link to my snails.
