Beautiful Images of Escargot in Action

​It's always amazing when we jump out of our own lives for a second and focus on what other living things are doing all around us. When we do, we're often filled with wonder and amazement to find out that animals and insects show behaviors (at least seemingly) similar to our own. For instance, are these two snails sensing their surroundings for a travel-able path, or are they two forlorn lovebirds reaching for one last kiss as their cherries float apart?

Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko took some time to follow around and capture images of what escargot do when they're not bathing in butter and garlic or getting tortured by some eight-year-old's magnifying glass and salt shaker. What is it that they do? They live their lives.
