Moon snails are so cool looking, unless you raise shellfish I guess.
Editing to add this link to an oyster grower. Who can’t love the Hama Hama river?

An outstanding image. The contrast in textures, and the spiral lines in the snails are fabulous.

Your shot seems so cool and damp – probably just the environment they’d like if they were actually still in there! Interesting blog post about them too. Glad you included that link.

Very beautifully photographed…I love spirals but not to eat!

Those spirals are wonderful. The simplicity, textures and repetition in your photo are wonderful, too.

Those are real snails? they looked like stone carvings to me!

These are as beautiful as sea shells! 🙂 Love how the processing makes the design in the shells so distinct!

Your processing brought out the natural beauty of these spirals.

Is this their natural color?

beautiful spirals, what once upon a time were the “houses” of snails is now the worth seeing object of the obxervers. It’s good you have noticed that.

I’ll grab the butter, garlic, one of those little escargot plates and be right there!

They do look big. Is that a little sand dollar behind them? Do they eat shellfish or something? I thought snails were herbivorous.

gorgeous – except when I find snails in my garden eating my leaves.

Great shot for the theme. These look pretty big!
