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.
