Bug-a-day #38 – Garden Snail

Does a snail count as a Bug?

I guess it’s a bit of a reach, but it’s my blog, and I want to include this rather weather-worn creature, who stopped by to say hello while I was lugging a few bricks around the garden the other day.

 

He was very large, so I’m guessing he’s been around a few years, but he’s not the prettiest one I’ve seen. However, if only his shell could talk, I’m sure it would tell a few tales. In fact, it looks like it’s been inscribed with its share of hieroglyphics already.
