Fingerprint Friday
Snails again this week for my FPF!
This wee chap was crawling over some of the iron work in the garden and he had gotten stuck. Where his little soft body would go, his hard shell would not follow and it struck me  that perhaps i am not His only creation to find myself squeezed into places i should not be, ( and i don't mean my little black dress!)

Aww, poor little guy ... it is hard for them when we put so many obstacles in their natural environment.

We love turtles. We live in the country and during the summer we often have to stop the car, get out, and move a turtle across the road to the other side so it can make it back into the woods and not get run over.

My husband taught me that you have to move them in the direction they are facing, or they will turn around and go back the other way right into danger again.

Lovely picture and analogy! I sorta love snails. They seem so peaceful, but then they eat my garden....

Michelle said...

Wow. I honestly have never seen a snail in my yard....and you've had a few. Poor guy is really in a pickle isn't he?? Thanks for sharing today.

Rebekah said...

Wow, that snail is much larger than anything I find here! I hope he finds his way out of there!
