try not to get worried / try not to turn on to / troubles that upset you / oh don’t you know / everything’s all right now / everything’s fine
Ukrainian nature photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko shows us that snails are so much more than incredibly slow-moving mollusks who leave slimy trails and sometimes end up on people’s dinner plates. By looking at his photos we learn that snails appear to be curious, playful and even affectionate.
Shot in the woodland area near his home town in Berdichev, located in the Zhytomyr Oblast of northern Ukraine, Mishchenko’s beautiful photos are apparently unstaged. Instead he relies on an extraordinarily keen eye for spotting wildlife:
'As a child, my father taught me to hunt mushrooms near my home and we would always come across all manner of bugs and creatures,' he said. 'As I got older and my interest in photography grew, I decided I wanted to catch these magical scenes on camera.'

When I was a kid, a snail used to come out every night and make a circuit around the dining room table, eating crumbs. We knew this because there were always new silvery trails around the carpet under the table. One night my parents’ bed broke (and no, I’ve never thought about why until right this moment) and they realized that they should come down and see if they could catch the snail in the act. They did. They put it out on the lawn. (Or was it a slug? Can’t remember.)
