Illustration Friday: “Hurry!”

Something quick for Illustration Friday’s prompt “Hurry!”

When I’m out taking walks in the spring, it upsets me to accidentally step on snails and slugs that are ever so slooowly crossing the sidewalks or path. So if I can, I will stop and help them along. I wonder if they appreciate that…?

    It’s not looking good for our hero! Perhaps the hapless human will see him at the last second and miss! Yikes! Hooray for moving slow critters to the side of the road! When I lived in Florida I helped many turtles across the road. :)

    I don’t like stepping on snails either – though that’s mainly because of the crunchy noise… Love your snails though, and the design.

    Much thanks, Frances. Yes, that crunchy sound is what alerts one to their demise. Ick.
