Macro photography of pond snails take 2

Hi all,

OK, I admit it, I really like these little critters. I just posted another series of photos of a pond snail (like this one) trying to crawl off a plant...

Maybe I should have started a blog just about snails?

Cheers,
EC

you should smush one and take a macro shot of shrimp eating them.

*ignore my deep seeded hate for bladder snails....*

I originally added them to the tank as "feeders" for my assassin snail. But now I really like them as an addition to the tank. They are much more interesting (and photogenic) than bladder snails.
