Click on the image for a bigger view.

I was going to open the front door this morning to walk the dog. On the walk way I saw these two snails. So of course I yelled... Holly come and get the dog there are two snail fighting and I want to get my camera. She takes one look out the door and goes um Mom, I don't think that is fighting! Now it took the 18 year old to explain to me what the heck was going on on my own front walk. :)

So I am laying on the walkway getting yucky slugs on my sweatshirt and my husband opens the door laughing. He says; you better get up, the neighbors are going to think I threw you out. Such support. (wink)

So the top picture are the snails doing it. (after it was explained to me)
The bottom picture is after they parted ways. I am assuming the one that went into his shell is the man snail. As it looked like he promptly fell asleep. LOL!! ahhhh... young snails in love.

Only another snail could love a snail. Ugly creatures. Loved your comment about it being a male snail.

However, the photography is wonderful.

Thanks everyone!!
Nice to know my snail porn pictures were considered Artistic. :)

Joanie.. I used my 50mm.
Aperture was 6.3, ISO 640 and my shutter speed was 80.

They are both cropped pretty heavy. I also had my metering set to spot. That really helped!

Um-m-m, in case you didn't know, snails are hermaphrodites, both male and female at the same time. Even given that information, their sex lives are far more strange than one can imagine....
