What a beautiful and impressing snail you have brought to us.
It is really beautiful although reading your great note I understand it can be very harmful. Very nice details and good POV. Thanks very much for sharing.
My late welcome to TN and best wishes for 2007.

magnifique ton escargot, les couleurs sont superbes, celui-ci n' a pas eu peur du photographe car il est resté bien étalé.
bon support aussi net

Thanks for showing us this "monster" in its integrality. Again, this is an excellent capture with good details and colors. Most of all, I really enjoyed reading those so interesting notes about them. This little boy from Miami, didn't know what he was doing ;) I didn't know that this animal could be a vector for human diseases. I don't think that this is a kind of snail that I would eat :-) This is a great post, thanks,

Fine contribution to TN, the first edition having been missed by me. Nice sharp and well presented shot and clever of you to water it first.
TFS and best wishes for 2007!

Thanks for showing us the whole monster!! Very interesting note illustrating how wrong it is to transport wild creatures to other parts of the world! With the drought in Africa it shouldn't spread too much though!
Excellent capture which is enhanced by the moisture, very sharp and excellent colours.
I look forward to some new shots of the beautiful wildlife of S. Africa from you in 2007!
Thank you and all the best for 2007, Ulla

Un excelente complemento de tu anterior presentación en primer plano AC con la misma calidad y bello colorido, a partir de un apropiado foco integral, punto de vista y encuadre que conforman una agradable composición.
Mis saludos y mejores deseos... Ricardo
An excellent complement of your previous presentation in close up AC with the same quality and beautiful colors, starting from an appropriate integral focus, point of view and framing that conform a pleasant composition.
Greetings and my best wishes... Ricardo

Wow, another amazing capture of this mammoth snail accompanied by a great and very informative note. Lovely work.
This is a trick I must remember for the future. Wetting the snail really brought out and intensified the wonderful colours, not only of the shell, but also on its body. The close-cropped composition worked very well to focus attention on the mollusc. The colours are absolutely stunning, the details are brilliant while the plane of the DOF is clearly visible, the evenly coloured BG compliments the subject very well, and you handled the exposure perfectly with the fill-in flash. Again the photo does not look flattened at all due to the use of the flash. To the contrary, I actually think there is wonderful depth in the presentation.
Very well done and TFS.

that ferocious monster really looks nice. Good idea to pour some water on it to get those beautiful rich colours.
Thank you! Best regards,

this looks great, very well composed with a excellent crop and great colors. The neutral BG does sho off your subject very well and the sharp details pop out very nice.
Welcome to TrekNature.

I have some bad news, and some more bad [bad] news; but also some good news...
Let me start in order...
The small bad news is that my previous critique is / was lost apparently... But my "Theming" has stood the test of time! [ Thus far ]
The really bad news is here where your image is shown by a thief on his /her gallery!
The "good" news is that I will renew my smiley!
Sorry not enough time to go thru a full critiques again.
The fact the shot was stolen is proof enough of its great quality!
PS Sorry to be the bearer of bad news
UPDATE Oct 1st 207:
The above stolen copy is not yet GONE! The other copy is gone < at "Musty" >
