Rush Hour


Time sometimes flies like a bird
sometimes crawls like a snail
but a man is happiest when he does not even notice 
whether it passes swiftly or slowly. 

(Ivan Turgenev)

I don't think I've ever seen that many snails in one place...incredible! That Turgenev quote made me stop and think...this is very true!!!

Wow, what a lot of snails, never seen so many in the one place. Great shot.

What an amazing picture, Annabelle. The poem is also wonderful.
Thank you for all your encouraging comments.

Wow! Once I get over being creeped out by having so many around, I see how COOL it looks!!

hello. said...

what a fantastic capture! there's something beautiful about the way they are all composed on the tree... i love the quote too!

Ms. Becky said...

well, what Loulou wrote. this is most unusual and that's probably why I like it so much. they cling to the bark of the tree, and then I must question - why? is it food? their shells are a fine example of the beauty that is gifted to us by nature, each and every day if we look and see. you did! happy Friday/Saturday to you Annabella. I must also say that each and every time you visit my blog, I consider it an honor.
