What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Repost: P.O.V. Snail Edition


Vyacheslav Mishchenko

Let’s be honest. Butterflies are easy. Sure, you have to have a good eye and a steady hand and be in the right place at exactly the right time, but they’re beautiful, and we all grew up predisposed to believe there’s something magical about them, so it’s not terribly hard to take a good picture. Then there are snails.

Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko has a wonderful way of bringing (very) small natural worlds up to our level. His snail photos (though he has also explored other insects’ points of view) feel posed or other-worldy, but he says he just hangs out waiting for magic to happen. Snails are not known for their quick pose changes, so he  must either very patient or live near some very interesting snails.

You can check out all of Vyacheslav Mischenko’s amazing photos on his website and on Facebook.

  1. It looks like a magical little world, and the pose on the cherry stems sure looks like they are kissing each other.

  3. One of my sisters adores snails – she had Giant African snails as pets when we shared a bedroom and they used to escape and slime all over my bed – so I immediately knew I had to send her this post. The photographs are superb and have a real fairytale quality to them.
