Nature Photo of the Week: Snail on a Leaf


I’m generally not a big fan of snails in the slinky slimy flesh (or with garlic and butter, for that matter) — but the delicate lighting on this guy’s whorling shell as shot by KoolPix/Flickr is tres magnifique, no?  Check out all The Nature Conservancy’s featured daily nature images, submitted to the Conservancy’s Flickr group by people like you — at And don’t forget to enter your best nature images in our 2009 Nature Photo Contest!

If you believe in the work we’re doing, please lend a hand.
