Was out walking down by the River Ribble again, looking for subjects to do for a "trio" theme for the camera club 1st Round hand-in in September, and (I have found something, more on that later - on a similar theme to this in a way) I spotted this snail suspended upside down atop a seedhead. The background is a wheatfield but I set the aperture good and wide to give the background some nice relief and to lift the subject out.

Its actually a nice photo the way you have taken it - one of those you can visualise on a card :)

I think you meant (or should have meant) you set the aperture wide rather than narrow ie you took this at F2.8 which is a wide aperture, whereas narrow would have been anything from F8 upwards.

Love your shot! The colours are warm and simplicity striking. Reminded me of one I took earlier this summer of an Acrobat Beetle...
