Here is last year's snail picture, on approximately 100:120 scale, and

The leaves are framing well the snail. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the snail. The late morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Wonderful macro image of the worm slowly marching with colorful autumn leaves. Superb quality and colors.

Fine snail. Fine scene and scenery.
Superb lightness and colours. Good exposure and capture.
Original dynamic effect. Excuse me, it is joke, only Polish joke.

Nice details, the leaves really provide a beautiful backdrop and the details of the snail in combination with the textures of the leaves, make a fine composition. Great job, TFS.
Have a great day

Nice close up shot of the snail . How nicely the color of the snail is blending with the colors of the leaves. Nice camouflage.

The slowly-crawling snail shows a haughty bearing on the leaves carpet lining the royal alley!

very nice. Both. The snail and the close-up of it.
Beautiful colors. A successful picture!
All the best

You're capturing well this nature scene by a good angle, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the fallen leaves dyed to autumnal tints of yellow and red, and the snail on the ground. It's humorous for its shape. So, it looks like a special spectacle after rain.

I didn't think there was anybody apart from me who photographed a snail.(mine is from 29/10 '14) You did a great capture with some really beautiful colors and exquisid sharpnes. I like your title a lot, too.
Have a great day... cheers Ike

The colors in the photo are pretty. I am afraid I cannot say the same of the critter, at best, it is homely. ;-) The photo is a nice and clear close-up.
