Anyway, I've written up some astro-highlights from my Christmas trip, and I'll share them with you over the next few days. This very un astronomical image is from the very start of the trip. In a paddock in the middle of nowhere (on a farmstay where we overnighted) all the fence posts were crowned with snails. Why? Is it some mass snail suicide pact? A free snail cafeteria for passing birds? The surrounding paddocks where dry (there was a dam at one end, but this was pretty far form the dam). Any ideas?
