Cool photo, I see blue snails first time in mylife. Thanks for sharing.
They dont like sun? Maybe they are like snail vampires? :-)

Quite good. Odd blue snails, a bit of a repeating pattern, decent enough DoF for closeup photography.. so really nice

Snails look for humidity since they need it to crawl, Sun dries everything so it is not their best friend.
