Photo of the week – week 22

We have a fascination in this house with mini beasts and snails! Monkey and I were in the garden on Wednesday and he found a snail moving through the grass.  It kept him captivated for ages, especially as it was so active.  He was enthralled by its slow slithery movement and the way it’s antenna shrunk and extended as it felt its way over the blades of grass.

I got my little camera out and this shot seemed to capture his movement the best.  What do you think?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Great photo! We had loads of snails in our garden Edinburgh, haven’t seen many here – except at the beach this week, where there were hundreds of sea snails (winkles)! #CountryKids

  2. That’s a fab photo! I’m forever rescuing frogs from the clutches of our young cat, one of these days
    I must grab my camera too. They tend to freeze when stressed which isn’t great if the cat’s trying to have a go, but handy to snap quickly with a camera! Not that I want them unduly stressed obviously, but a nice camera shot would be good!!

    1. I took loads, he was a really active little snail, kept Monkey and I glued for ages, so I had time to grab the camera, really interesting to watch him move close up. One of my old cats bought a toad home for me once – ended up under my bed , no so pleasant!

      1. Ooh, not nice! Luckily, I’ve been able to rescue every frog so far. Did you know they scream? V distressing sound when you realise what it is and why they’re making it. The joy of cats!

          1. He! He! Not so good for our animal friends really. So far we’ve ‘only’ had dead mice….

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
