What a rare capture of this fascinating mating scene. The note about the snails' behavior was very informative and interesting. Your patience really paid off, Michal. TFS. : )

Michal, you little perverted voyeur ;-)))
You're very lucky! Rare moment, great note about this event. My favourite writer Gerald Durrell wrote about same event in one of his books. Picture is very good, but two snails look disguisting ;-)

You've done very well Michal to capture this under difficult conditions. Very good detail & use of flash showing this slimy "love me tender" lovefest action ;-) (that's a mouthful). EXCELLENT notes on the copulation of this species..Very well done!

Skoro ktos juz poruszyl watek Freuda, to sie moze tego trzymajmy ;)
Przede wszystkim zdjecie podoba mi sie z uwagi na rzadkosc fotografowania slimaczych godow ;) To duze szczescie cos takiego widziec, a do tego jeszcze zrobic przyzwoite zdjecie to juz w ogole... Tak, tak ;) Tobie sie to calkiem niezle udalo.
Brawo takze za szczegolowy opis, sporo ciekawego tu znalezc mozna :)

There are many incredibly good shots in your Gallery, How come I didn't see them before, eh?
Anyway, this closeup is simply amazing. Perfect note.
Greetings and thanks for sharing!!!
