It wasn't the snail that originally attracted me to the parsley flower head, but the water droplets. Upon getting close, I saw the acrobat guest.
I let one or two parsley plants go to seed, so I have a constant supply of parsley. Bees like them too and, as we can see, so do other critters.
This is my contribution to edition #60 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook, now organized by Cinzia of Cindystar, and hosted this week by Haalo of Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once.
The photo was shot in color and then converted to light sepia.
This post contains the gallery of images submitted to the event.
On this page, you can find out who is hosting the current and future editions of the event.
Anch'io ho le piantine che mi crescono dalla pianta che e' fiorita in primavera.

Lovely focus on the parsley seed heads and water droplets! The tenacious little snail looks like he has a water droplet on his shell.

Ciao Laura. A me il prezzemolo piace in tutti gli stadi della pianta.
Thanks, Lynne. Indeed, it looks like a droplet is forming there. Tenacious is the right adjective: it's amazing what these little critters can achieve.

I laughed too, when I first saw it: it was in such an improbable position!
