First Look Photo: More than meets the eye

I took a nice walk on the beach, and found this shell among the sand.  The thing I didn’t notice at first was how many shells there really were.

Not just sand

Photo Friday: Eye Level to a Slug

August 18, 2017

Living in Maine, I’ve seen a lot of leopard slugs, but it’s always from a standing position.  One thing I never knew about them is they have a hole on their side called the pneumostome which is what land slugs and snails use to breath.  In order to see this breathing hole I had to get close to eye level.  That is where today’s picture is from; on my stomach, next to a slug.

The rain can bring out some beautiful morning creatures, like this snail.  They’re small, and hard to see when you’re not looking for them, but they make great subjects.

First Look Photo: Periwinkle picture

March 8, 2017

I took this picture for my assignment on macro photography.  I chose this because of the unusual design, naturally carved into it.  The periwinkle shell is home to both the snail, and hermit crabs.
