Nature Snapshots

It’s been raining a lot lately and the snails have been out. I’m not sure why, but I have always loved snails. Did you know that garden snails have both male and female reproductive organs? This is not true for all types of snails (I think only garden). I am not sure what type this is, but either way I have always been fascinated by that fact. Here are some pictures of snails and other forms of nature that I captured over the weekend.

And of course I had to throw in my baby, Ted! He likes to observe the nature with me. He especially likes lizards and squirrels.

  1. You probably know that we eat snails in France. It’s disgusting when you think about it but it’s really good! πŸ™‚

  2. I especially love image #6 of the yellow flowers against that striking blue background.

    • Thank you! Yes, that was one of my favorites as well. Those are actually my neighbors flowers that grow over our fence lol, they have such pretty plants!

  3. I really like your photos – especially the snails! What kind of camera do you use?

    • Thanks so much! I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ5. It is not professional, but it takes great pictures for a point and shoot camera. They have had a few newer models since this one, and I hope to upgrade soon when I have the money.

      • I’m really impressed with your photos – they’re great. I don’t think a really fancy camera is necessary, although I did recently upgrade to a Sony NEX (c3) and am happy I did.

  4. Nice work Ashley! I had a Panasonic TZ6 before I upgraded to my DSLR. They are super little cameras and you put it to great use!
