[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Really is it possible to taste? This is pair of Common Garden Snails (Helix aspersa) joining together. Snails are hermaphrodite which means they each have both sex organs male and female and both are active at the same time . The mating season is from late spring when things warm up to early summer. Picture is slightly sharpen and croped.

Very good shot!
The details and colours are great, but the DOF seems to be a bit too shalow. It would be also nice to try a different POV.
Anyway, the shot is really good and I like it.
Well done!
