    Serendipity made the slug wander by just as I was pulling out the necklace to photograph it. I guess it was just meant to be.

    Oh my goodness what luck for the bananna slug to decide to pop by for the photo. Where on earth do you live? Never heard of such a creature either, however I have found more bugs and critters living in Florida than I ever could have imagined and know they only scratch the surface. There is a spot on the page for a profile if you would like to share info or a little about yourself.

    ha ha, awesome inspiration!! Do you live in the Pacific NW? I’ve seen banana slugs in the forests of Washington – they’re so weird and neat.

    Another Canadian! Welcome!! I’m in southern Saskatchewan and I’ve never seen a banana slug …that might be a good thing!! Hehehe! :-D
    I can’t believe how perfectly the colors match but I guess it makes sense…they’re both from nature!!
