Portable Protection



What better protection than the shell that protects the snail from danger, although he really wasn't bothered by me lighting his way. Shot in raw with nikkor 60mm macro using extension tubes and ring flash.

Also like how you've positioned the snail in the frame. Good take on the theme.

The theme this month has allowed for lots of really good interpretation :thumbsup:

haha, this is a cracking idea. Bang-on theme too. I like how he is hanging upside down.

I'd have been tempted however to move him to a more contrasting coloured background - eg some grass. As he is a bit brown on brown and gets a bit lost in the image. Just shows you that his camouflage works though!
