Great post Callie.
I will not play with that one ;-)
It's maybe not your best photo,
but with the great note is a excellent work.
I'm glad I live in Sweden, we haven't any poisen scorpions and snakes except one viper who is not deadly.

Very nice little insect, I#d like to play with this one :-))
Nice shot, focus a bit soft.

Very interesting post!
I agree that the photo isn'n maybe perfect, but the note is very good and because of that I like your post very much.
Same as Gert I'm really glad that I live in my country. In summer I can walk without shoes even when I am in forest. All what can bite me is viper or wood ant, but vipers hardly ever attack people and the bites of ants are even less paintful than mosquitos ;-)
After read your note I think that in Africa it is better to wear shoes all the time ;-)
Thanks for posting

The photo is'nt sharp enough and the POV is'nt the best.
The head should be more in focus.
But the not is excellent, I learned a lot.
Nice photo Callie
Thanks for posting

That something else then wild photo shots, wauw Callie, what a creap, very good capture you did, good composing shot, good colours and a nice balance and ofcoarse an extreme good note very good job Callie
Opnieuw een mooie foto van deze schorpioen Callie, en de aanpassing met de grond voor de camouflage is duidelijk te zien, dood of levend is de foto eveneens mooi.

I'm glad you've continued on the scorpions, I was keen to see more after your last post. I like the streched out pose I wonder if the head is a little soft in focus, but not a major niggle. Good shot and note.

This little creature is such a big baddy? Thanks for showing this Callie and for the notes as well. You wouldn't want to mess with this one. Please keep it over there.

Well seen Callie. These guys are normally only seen after you fely their sting. Good work

Thanx Callie. This is a really bad critter. I found a little one last week in the house. Spoke to people living here for ages. None have seen one in these parts. Strange...
I don't think it's soft or OOF. I think the unusual (but natural) BG creates the impression that it looks soft. I think you did a great job with our 1st scorpion for the site.

Dangerous and beautiful. I like scorpions [on photos :-)]. I hope you send more of those interesting arachnids Callie.

Nice one Callie, I heard some where that the smaller the pincers the more venomous they are.

Now I know why I always made sure my army boots were empty! I learnt a lot from this post and another on my wishlist. The composition and exposure is very good. I look forward to tomorow's post.
Very well done and thanks for posting.
