Macro Monday – From Soil to Ice

My son found this little one when walking the path up to my door. Surely he is a bit too early on his way – the snail? February only.

He was so tiny, only about 3 millimeters, and still venturing out in this big world…on icy paths with an unwashed house. He ”looked” at me…

but, when I came too close with the camera, he silently steered away.

My son decided to pick him up and hide him under the garden bushes – out of sight from hungry little birds. Maybe we will meet again, on our way towards summer?
