Another cool thing in the woods

Lily has spent a lot of time in the woods the spring.   Spring is a great time to find cool things in the woods. 

Like this.   At first glace it looked like a snail climbing on a weirdly shaped leaf. 

But on closer investigation, the leaf actually grew through the shell.


It grew through the shell at exactly the right angle as to pick it up and not knock it out of the way.

What are the chances of that, do you suppose?

And aren't we lucky to see it?


  1. Wow...even plants like to accessorize! It looks like a giant bracelet gracing its arm. And yes, we are lucky to see it!

  2. That's just freakin' hilarious! I'll have to show the kids... Nature really does have a sense of humor (this and the platypus are fine examples...LOL!).

  3. To see the beauty in little things is a real gift! Keep looking for all of us and then sharing!
