21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Polymitas are considered the most beautiful snails in the world and are endemic to the most eastern part of Cuba. They are also Mollusks of 2022. When I discovered them I couldn't resist making my trip about them. Very hard to get to, 24 hours on a bus plus the hiking of course. But worth it.
