Slither by Hades-shadow Slither by Hades-shadow
Slugs are so cute......in that weird "You just want to poke them to see what happens" kind of way.

It does deserve some fame actually, because of the sheer terror and distress I must have caused the poor little guy.

It initially started with me just trying to take a shot of it, innocent enough.. Attempting to put my hand under me to support myself I accidentally flicked it's (tail?) backend. Which made it recoil and I hate to wait 2 minutes for it to pop back out

Then, whilst trying to get a better angle I thought I'd lift the leaf it was on (Hey, I thought nothing would happen) turns out it was heavier than I thought and It slipped off the leaf =( Ten I tried sliding it back onto the leaf and yeah.... I decided I'd leave it alone at that point since I'd probably end up killing the poor thing if I stayed any longer.

Anyway, the point of this shot, was that it was my first low-light macro shot, although I had experimented with longer exposure and testing noise levels at different ISO .. Still waiting on a vertical grip for my EOS so I can get taking shots with that [hehe, My external flashgun would probably have killed the slug]

thats really nice, I like how you've perfectly captured the texture of his body.

Can't say much for your people skills though, where I come from we just ask them to smile ;P

Thanks, that's what I liked the most (I just love DoF) I have the feeling that people skills were just not assertive enough, he was in a [slow] hurry to go wherever it was he wanted to be going :D
