Hello, a very interesting and unusual photo of the common snail presumably mating. Isn't funny how life here on Earth comes in so many varieties, each with its' own uniqueness and specialness. Your photo reminds us all of that specialness and that life shares some similariites.
Excellent DOF and sharpness from your chosen small aperture.

hello Tibi
very good sharpness and great details
the colours and light are beautiful
thanks greeting lou

Hello Tibi,
fine capture of these snails with good sharpness and a very good timing to capture it in such a lovely position. I also like the natural colours.
Best wishes,

Szia Tibi,
Na végre egy igazán remek közelfotó, amelyet még gondolatban sem tudok megkritizálni, s csak jókat írhatók róla, nagyszerű élesség, természetes színek, akárcsak az 500-s telével készített gyurgyalag fotód, gratulálok!

Ciao Bartha.
