I seem to be having great luck lately having invertebrates pose for their portraits! This guy was washed out by Hanna's big rain and landed on an extremely prickly object. I always wear leather gloves when I rake up these American chestnut pods. They really hurt!
I guess slugs feel no pain because the thorns did not seem to hinder him. Mr. Slug moved right along and found safety rather quickly.
For anyone wanting more 'up close and personal' slug photos, I uploaded the whole photo shoot to a Picasa Web Album. All shots are right out of the camera and some are fuzzy. I won't leave them up forever, so look if you dare. Choose slideshow for the best viewing experience. Enjoy.
I think this slug looks related to the couple in yesterday's cartoon, don't you?
