Hello Yves!
Very nice photo of rarely presented invertebrate on TN :)
When I look at your picture I remain some story with with this creature. When I was in France in 2001 I cought one specimen of this scorpion in Tamaris (near Tulon) to show it to my friends (we had base in the centre of Tamiris). Unfortunatelly the scorpion escaped me in my room! :) After 2 hours I found it but was a fanny day :)
According to your photo I like the colours and natural BG, but a little better DOF would be nice.
Best greetings,

excellent photo. Sharp and beautiful colors. I think cicindela has seen the blur on the pince. It looks to me a blur motion and not a DOF too shallow. The blur motion is OK to me.
I would have chosen another POV (just rotating the camera a little. I made a workshop but I see now that I can't post it (probably you disabled the option). With a rotation of 12 degree, the tail is in the upper left corner and the composition is better.
Great pic.

Qui s'x frotte s'y pique.
Bonne journée.

Salut Yves

Belle photo très nette.
Mieux vaut le laisser en paix ce scorpion.

Est-ce la même espèce que l'on trouve sur la coline de Valère a Sion ?

A bientôt
