While enjoying the beautiful weather last weekend, a surprise thunderstorm hit. The sky opened up and poured down rain for a solid 30 minutes. And when the sun came back out, so did something else…

Snails.
Lots…
…and lots of snails.
There were little snails…
…and big snails.
Brown snails…

…and blue snails.
Hungry snails…
…and flexible snails.
Snails with smaller snails attached to their backs…
…and, as they are known in German, naked snails (Nacktschnecke).

The clothed ones make for much better pictures, however.

Are there snails where you live?
