Snails both Big and Small and a Devil's Coach Horse

 I noticed a lot of snails on the gravestones in North Merchiston cemetery today! There were very large garden snails:

and some tiny snails in the letters of some of the graves 

Meanwhile, I was delighted to see this devil's coach horse beetle on the path in the cemetery. This is the first of these beetles I've seen in the cemetery. 

 The Friends Group for North Merchiston Cemetery is now on Twitter, you can follow them @FofNMC here.
