Melo aethiopica. This beautiful gastropod shell is from the vicinity of Philippines. Actually the shell of this gastropod is quite elongated, but viewed from the top (apex) it superficially resembles a land snail shell with ornaments.This macrophoto was taken under available light.

Hallo Mehmet
You have such an interesting gallery, and this specimen is especially striking. This a perfect macro with beautiful details captured. It reminds me of hardened icing sugar on a cake. The colour and patterns on this shell is really a feast to the eye. Excellent details and sharpness. The dark background supplies a great contrast and the composition is great. Thanks for sharing yet another one of your beauties in your collection. It is always appreciated.
Kind regards.

Merhaba Mehmet,
at first thank you for your comment to my picture, i am proud of your kind words; a splendid picture of a splendid shell taken from a perfect POV with very good sharpness and very beautiful colours, you are a master photographer of these species.
Best regards
