Taken with my Fuji X-E1 and a Lester A. Dine 105mm ƒ2.8 Macro Manual Focus lens. Handheld

Thanks for the votes and kind comments. Watching this all week has driven me crazy. From a high of 7.2 it dropped for the last 5 days. I got the idea after a rain shower (knew the snails would be out), but could get no photos that just popped. Then I decided to put a snail on the head of this frog shaped pot, what you see is the result.

This is a new personal best and the highest rated for my camera and lens, could not be happier and a great tuneup for TPL.....Go Shady Sheep.
