Macro Monday: Slugs




Abandoned in winter, my garden has become a bush. I looked under a giant pot sitting on egg cartoons are some unwanted guest. Slugs!!!!

The weather is too erratic, and I am going away for the summer. I left the slugs alone. The water engineer asked what they are. Like I told my students, slugs are snails who got in a fight and lost their homes.

I hate slugs especially when you tread on them by accident in bare feet!

Mind you, our slug population has kept our hedgehogs well fed so I shouldnt complain!

They are beautiful against the colors of the egg cartons. Although I don't like them in the garden I believe there is a purpose for all creatures in this web of life.
