Sometimes we can miss the little stories playing out in our gardens or backyards if we don’t take a moment to stop and look. Take this small, striped-shell snail leaning down from its toadstool seat to take a sip of water from an acorn cup. Whether snails even drink water (or whether this whole little scene was staged) doesn’t really matter; we can still enjoy the whimsy of the capture:
The shot, entitled “Hot Day”, was captured by photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko with a Fujifilm FinePix S200EXR, at 1/170 of a second and f/5.3. You can see more of Mishcehnko’s beautiful macro shots of snails in various environments here.
