but find the rock beneath." Whittier
I felt quite astounded to watch this tiny snail bravely transfer from one bush to another across a considerable gap and above a considerable drop for so small a creature -- not quite as agile or as graceful as a monkey, but no less athletic.

selam shelly, an excellent macro shot and very good composition of this snail nice pov and bg with splendid colours.
Well done ! Regards
I like your composition, it is very nice to see how it streches itself to save the abbyss :)
Details are very clear, maybe highlights could be improved a bit with some postprocessing.
Best regards, Felipe.
I am surprised at how he could reach out to this other leaf without falling.
This is a very not often found photo. Good find Shelley!
