A handsome snail

After a light shower yesterday, garden snails came out of their shells and went on a walkabout in search for food. Snails get some bad press in gardening circles, but most of my garden snails are feeding on the ground, on dandelion leaves or fallen vegetal material - OK, I am an untidy gardener now you know. I found this beautiful individual and thought I would take its portrait. It behaved quite well on a white plate and here you have it, on its best side.
