Ukrainian nature photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko shows us that snails are so much more than incredibly slow-moving mollusks who leave slimy trails and sometimes end up on people’s dinner plates. By looking at his photos we learn that snails appear to be curious, playful and even affectionate.

Shot in the woodland area near his home town in Berdichev, located in the Zhytomyr Oblast of northern Ukraine, Mishchenko’s beautiful photos are apparently unstaged. Instead he relies on an extraordinarily keen eye for spotting wildlife:

'As a child, my father taught me to hunt mushrooms near my home and we would always come across all manner of bugs and creatures,' he said. 'As I got older and my interest in photography grew, I decided I wanted to catch these magical scenes on camera.'

Visit Vyacheslav Mishchenkos’ website to check out many more of his remarkable nature photos. The only thing missing from them is narration by Sir David Attenborough.

I got me some good looks at the moon last night but this is perfection!

It’s getting very 1981 in here. #FrankShirts #QuailTop @yamahaguitarsus

It’s all fun and games until, well, you know.

This is today. #FrankShirts #badform

I think I’ll call him Muttley. With a little help from @newvintageamps and Saturnworks Pedals, I’ve now got a studio board filled with pedals too vintage to tour or too random to use often. #QuailTop.

Hard at work with TD at Emerson College’s amazing and dearly departed Studio C. 2-inch 16-track? I mean, come on! ca. 1993.

A lot of people make money off of fear and negativity and any way they can feed it to you is to their benefit in a lot of ways. You can’t avoid it completely; you have to be open enough that shit doesn’t stick on you, it goes through, because you are gonna be hit and bombarded all the time with negativity… You just let things go on through without trying to stop them or block them.
