Two Burgundy Snails doing what they have to do when they do it. This shot was taken in the afternoon and now it's late evening, and they're still doing it ;)

Such a wonderful photo you did here in a very good quality.
I have seen many burgundy snails here, but sadly I have never seen them mating.

I don't know why I never wondered how they mated, but I guess I know now. Thanks.
