In The Heat Of The Sun

snails_fennel

Yesterday was a pretty hot day in Mallorca, what with temperatures of 34° C in the air and some 24° C in the Mediterranean waters.

The absence of rain over the last six to eight weeks makes the current heat drier than is usual for this time of year. Humidity levels were only at about 32 % yesterday, when normally they would be in the eighties.

No wonder then that one can see snails in the countryside clinging on to anything that promises some humidity such as here, where hundreds and thousands of these small creatures cling onto some juicy wild fennel branches (Foeniculum vulgare).

The photo was taken near Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 9th, 2009. The time was 17:42:59.
