Creepy Crawlies

I know some of you will cringe when you see these photos, and there are certain little creatures that I am not terribly fond of (for example: centipedes), but I have such a fascination for earthworms, slugs and snails. When you look closely they have the most intricate, delicate bodies. And the way slugs slowly extend and retract their optical tentacles and sensory tentacles (just learned the proper names for these today:D) looks just as if they were under water, so peaceful and graceful.

Here a few that we found in the yard the other day. The earthworm was the largest I’ve ever seen though I know they can get much bigger than this. IMG_9116 IMG_9110 IMG_9121 IMG_9126 IMG_9127 IMG_9134 IMG_9135 IMG_9139 IMG_9140 IMG_9151 IMG_9156 IMG_9158 IMG_9160 IMG_9161 IMG_9162
