Check Out The Incredible World Of Snails

Snails don’t get a lot of love, in a world of kittens and puppies, the snail rating on the cuteness scale is about a negative 12. But that’s only because we never get a good look at their lives up close.

Ukraine-based artist and photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko aims to change that with his photographs showing the world the way snails see it, with giant berries, treacherous raindrops, and hardcore make-out sessions perched atop flower petals.
