Snail with a Mite
While out on my daily walk today, I found a snail on the trail. While photographing it, I realized it had a little visitor on one of its tentacles. I'm guessing that it is a mite and is feeding off the snail.
Neat what interesting things you can find when you stop to notice the ordinary.
A mite has attached itself to this snail's optic tentacle which can also be referred to as a "feeler"
