Great moment of interaction you have managed to photograph here. It surely looks as if they are "into" one another. The details of both the snails and the environment in which you have captured them are great and beautiful to look at. The light in the image is also very pleasant. Thanks for sharing a great macro and not something we see everyday. Best regards.

Snails are often seen here but this activity is unusual for me. Very well seen and presented. I concur with all the critiques above.

una bella macro di questo accoppiamento di chiocciole, ottima nitidezza, buona l'esposizione con la luce flash che mantiene la giusta atmosfera di sottobosco, ottimo il punto di ripresa con un efficace impatto visivo
Grazie e complimenti

This capture of mating Snails is matchless in terms of sharpness and clarity, Anne. One can imagine how the light conditions would be in a situation like that. However, you have managed a shot that is perfect in every respect.
Thanks and regards.

lovely capture of this seldom seen creature. You have shown in great details and a special close up.
Lovely top view that tell the story very well.
A beautiful macro study of these two helices (Helix pomatia) busily inseminating each other Anne, your POV is perfect, the clear image is sharply focused and the exposure spot-on. The resulting fine composition is a pleasure to observe. TFS indeed!

Funny to see your snails mating; only a few days ago I asked/wondered how snails were mating. I cannot get at my books at present and wait for somebody to climb my book shelves...
Judging by the macro photography, you have been crawling around a lot. :-)
And got muddy knees.
Your macro contains wonderful details, and I am ever so pleased you contributed this interesting image.
Thanks and gruezi
