One day in the country lanes of the Alvor Estuary, on our way to the marsh lands. Americo, drew my attention to clusters of tiny snails all along the fence. It was such an unusual sight that I immediately took some photos to share for Good Fences.
We saw two clusters of tiny dormant snails.
You will be better able to see the singular snails on the lower wire.
They were much smaller than my little fingernail.
They will feed many of the birds which inhabit the marshlands.
I expect that after summer is over, and the rain begins to fall, they will make their way down the posts to lay their eggs.
The larger snails had a pretty pattern on their shells.
