Picture of old snail shell on withered thistle
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera September 6th 2010. Click image for larger view.
If you pay attention to the nature around you you can find beautiful things everywhere. Here I have photographed an old snail house sitting on a withered thistle. The snail seems to have crawled up the thistle stem and died there.
I find snail shells to have a fascinating coiled structure that makes a good picture. Check other snail shell pictures here and here.
