It is amazing what inspirational stories you can find to tell right from your own backyard. This short actually started life as a macro still lens test, not a video. It was going to be a still of the bright red flowers spring always brings to the ice plant, and instead has ended up here as a video and of snails. A subject I probably would have considered of little interest had I not shot first and seen what interesting movement they have. I had never seen a snail drink, or eat. I never knew snails had teeth until I shot this footage. And I certainly would have never assumed snails also ate insects.
With all documentary subjects, one needs to be prepared to follow the action wherever it leads you... even if the distance is measured only in inches.
