    Default The eye of a Snail???

    ID: Air breathing land snail

    With the recent, unseasonal showers due to the cyclone, quite a lot of new life forms have started emerging in the garden area, especially due to the moist atmosphere that exists in the corners of the garden area. One such surprising find was this particular beauty, a small snail that seemed to be staying out of the general sight, but luckily for me could get a close shot of it, and one of the interesting bit of the beautiful specimen, apart from the jelly like structure, was those tiny eyes on the tip of the upper tentacle, or is it just the tentacle’s tips? Though managing the tip in frame was a pretty difficult task, due to the sheer size and also the fact that the snail wasn’t comfortable staying kaput to one place, and probably wanted to stay safe from the intruder, in my form.

    Good details on the tiny part. Had not seen this from so close before. Getting a low angle here would have been quite difficult. Great capture. Thanks for sharing.

    If you don't tell people that this is a close up of a snail then many people won't be able to guess.
