Carpe Diem # 692 Mud Snail
the mountain fauna
still soaking wet from the night
snail sipping the dew
on a granite rock
which moves faster
lichen or snail
amidst leaves and mud
a new green shoot
and a snail
on a foggy day
a snail hurries
across a boulder

“Sipping the dew” – very nice, though I’m sure our snails skip that in favour of chomping on my spinach!

nice go Dolores … you’ve created a lovely series here … I especially liked the second haiga … what a lovely image in both senses!
Thanks, My three year old grand daughter pulled him out of the mud and placed him their for us to photograph.

Ah … how much more beautiful becomes the series with this bit of background!

you will appreciate this – when I did kids camps we did snail races. Add some water and they can move at least faster than a tortoise.

Sounds like lots of fun!
