I realize this is not my usual sort of photo blog, but how often do you see a snail "doing his daily business" (as my grandpa would have called it)? We have a lot of snails where we live in Texas, especially in damp times of the year. This one was on our sliding glass door several years ago and I took a series of pictures, which happened to catch him doing a little....er, housekeeping. I thought it was very interesting to see a snail from the underside.
A snail upon my windowpane,
Doing his business in the rain,
Boring and ugly though he be,
This - a very strange sight to see.
Here he is squishing himself back up inside of his shell.
