This photo made me really smile and I even laughed out when I read the comment of the suggester: "He wants to jump, just funny snail." Yew and snail by ~Dunadan-from-Bag-End is a wonderful example of a well done close up and a real pleasure for the macro galleries. ( Suggested by pap911 and Featured by impressionenmeer )

Yew berries, after meeting me, usually don't survive long enough to take a photograph. I wonder, where do you find yew seeds this time of the year?

Btw how tiny is that snail? :squee:

Beautiful photo!

Photo was taken a couple of years ago already during the late summer/early autumn when yew berries are common ;) and yeah, snail was tiny-tiny, but I've seen smaller :D Thank you for comment! :)
