My favourite of the challenge - super light and a really strong mono conversion. Thoroughly delightful (and I didn't ever expect to describe a photo of a slug as that!)

I love this! The backlighting highlighting the edges of the vegetation and the slug's "horns" is gorgeous. Love the texture on the slug, too.
