Photography is my only pathological addiction; hopefully it won't drive me to something worse. :rolleyes: :oops:

Fantastic Bob. I've yet to get a good one with an Apple Snail. Are there numbers climbing now?

the experts say they are. Last year they were scarce in my marsh- this year it's a bonanza. They go were the snails are. Water levels are critical as well
