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.'

The Bradley Timepiece is a minimalist watch designed for the blind. Enclosed within a titanium shell, a magnet moves a raised ball bearing around dual tracks on face and side of the watch, providing users with a discrete and simple way to check the time.
The watch is named after an ex-naval officer named Bradley Snyder who went on to win gold and silver at the London Paralympics after losing his vision in a tragic 2011 explosion in Afghanistan.
The Bradley Timepiece comes in either stainless steel or leather and goes on sale this June.
