Lovely shot- looks rather creepy in the videos. Assume this is one that infects birds that eat the snail ?

The footage i've shot of this snail, and some of another snail is going to be aired on 3 Januari on the BBC. It is a show called 'Nature Wierdest Events'. The clip is already online at the BBC

The clips starting at: 2:53 , 3:55 ,4:00, 4:05 , 4:11 and 4:22 are done by me.
Now i can add 'cameraman for the BBC' to my resume

Cheers, Kees

The description freaked me out. The picture is nice. Could've experimented with the focus spots but this works too.
