Glowing Snail

Macro opportunities are few and far between at this time of year, although the unusually mild weather has meant there is still some invertebrate life around. I recently saw a very small snail on the leaf of a now wilted sunflower plant in my garden and happened to notice that its shell and body were slightly translucent. It was a bright sunny day and so by carefully changing the angle of the leaf I was able to get the sun to shine through the snail. Probably not everyone's cup of tea but I quite like the final image.
