Monday theme : Speed... too late ?...

by Jacquesr September. 18, 2007 5654 views

Une fois de plus je suis en retard…
Désolé de vous avoir fait attendre… pour ce thème consacré à la vitesse…
Je pensais pouvoir vous présenter une course d'escargots… la plus rapide du monde.
Malheureusement les candidats ne furent pas très nombreux.
Deux, récoltés juste après une pluie matinale…
Ils dormaient encore…
Je pensais les réveiller avec une bonne feuille humide de rosée…
Mais l'un à continué de dormir… Et l'autre s'est esquivé…
Pas moyen de faire cette course d'escargots…
Tant pis… j'aurais essayé !
===
Once more I am late…
Afflicted to have made you wait… for this topic devoted at the speed…
I thought of being able to present you the fastest snail race of the world.
Unfortunately the candidates were not very numerous.
Two, collected just after a morning rain…
They still slept…
I thought of awaking them with good wet leaves…
But one go on sleeping… And the other went away…
No way to make this snail race…
I'm very disappointed… but I would have tried!

The two candidates for the race.

Some leaves to stimulate…

One begins to salivate… but the other is always sleeping…

And now… the other runs away…

No snail racing today !

Jacques, excellent !!!!!! mais réalise un peu qu'avec des escargots comme support du thème tu partais avec handicap. Et donc "les derniers seront les premiers" Bravo

You're not late!
remember, your candidates are called snails, you didn't expect them to arrive on time, did you?

great shots!

Nothing like a snail race to excite your day.

i like the phrase "Unfortunately the candidates were not very numerous. "

in a world of our own, there's got to be a world of your own.
