Slow and Steady what?

I’ve never seen a snail anywhere but on the ground. To see one climbing along a vine was a surprise- I don’t know if this is normal or if this was an adventurous snail that was going where no snail had gone before..

This photo looks normal except that I've rotated it

This is what it looks like from the other side

I'm fascinated by how the snail almost seems to drape itself around the vine

    It’s called a fall-safe-snail advantage.

    Excellent shots!
    They are on your plants at night – eating. They dont like us to watch them.
    Hope you are doing well. We are hoping to get our story about our dragon published by the end of the year. Thanks for your visits in the past.

    In the first picture, the snail looks like it’s smiling. 🙂

      I hadn’t noticed it but now that you mention it- there is definitely a smile 🙂
