No snails today. It was sunny and dry. But I found the love dart from the pair of happy Helix aspersa snails that I photographed on Saturday. What is a love dart you ask? Love darts are made of calcium carbonate. Snails stab their mates with it during their “courtship”. Here is an article from wikipedia about love darts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_dart
Found this Helix aspersa making bubbles. Not sure why it was doing that. Snails make bubbles when they’re scared or dehydrated. It stayed on that branch for a while after making the bubbles. Its tentacles and eyes were retracted (see gallery below). It perked up after I sprinkled some water on it.
A handful of snails and some photos of bees. The snails were saved while work in the garden was being done. These pictures are from June 2, 2019 but not previously added to the site.
I spotted snails in the garden for the first time this year today. Lots of itty bitty ones.
