I love the trasnparency of the "horns" and the questing feel of the shot

I've never seen a snail with such a beautiful shell. It's beautiful!

Good detail and i like the way the edge of the frame looks like it's zooming in on the snail.

A beautiful image and great color composition. The soft streaky green background to the left and upper right corner of the frame directs the eye to your subject.

Nice capture.

Everyone is clamoring to know, so I will just go ahead and ask up front for all of us: Did you have to use special high speed flash units to capture stop action on this subject as it was speeding by?

Good shot. Should be more creatively outrageous though. I love the contrast you presented here. Congrats. (5)

You should have closed the aperture a little or compesate the light to contrast the light and colors

You have taken a very ugly critter and made a beautiful photo with it.
You're the winner in my opinion.

Beautiful macro. The exposure is very good though the light is a bit strong harsh in some parts of the snail.
But the shot is beautiful and very well taken. CONGRATULATIONS !
