Photograph by Baikada (ばいかだ)


The shell is lovely. The snail is a tolerance. The cowfish is lovely. However, slug is unpleasant… These might be your opinions. This photograph might be most unpleasant in slug. It is jet-black slug. When seeing for the first time, I was terribly surprised. When it might be a creature with a lot of negative images, but I have liked it very much.

Yama-koura-namekuji is this kind recorded in the red data book on Japan. Maybe it isn’t found easily. It has not understood from the dearth of information well though I variously examined. “It is only in West Japan.” “There is a possibility of the import kind.” “It is not unusual.” It is not all information that can finish being trusted. However, “It is in the marsh in the vicinity of the high mountain belt” was common. From such a reason, it might be not amusing even in case of the location of him in Ome where I live.

Why information on him become complicated? The creature dies. They teach us a lot of information by the carcass’s its becoming a bone, and remaining. However, moisture evaporates when dying and the carcass doesn’t remain in slug. Therefore, the investigation in various places often seems to end by “Dearth of information” about slug.

However, the camera attaches to the mobile phone now. Various people came to be able to leave information. As a result, living of various creatures will be confirmed.
It is necessary to make a mark for me not to be defeated at everyone and either to live with the camera. I want to take the ecology photographs other than the egg laying time some time. However, I think that the photograph where the charm of the living thing is told is good. I will variously take the photograph.
