does it lives in Turkey, also?
The shot is good with real colors and details.

Excellent centipedew! The photo is so good, that I easily count only 36 feet, because it was fidgeting al the time;)
Good job, Serhan !

wow! beautiful shot! I had the same problem with a similar one. But you did a fine shot. You can fix the sharp problem with a software program. I like a lot the colors and contrast of your picture. Congrats. Gabriel

Thanks for sharing this type of hundred legs as I have never seen one before. It sure is a eeky insect. It think it must be the head on the left side as those feelers seem to look more like antennae.
Reading your notes about the surprising speed this thing is capable of, I am sure one should appreciate how difficult this shot was. Because of the brief period you had a view of it you had to point, compose and shoot in very quick succession.
The composition is good and the colours are fine. The DOF could be better (as you said), but it is not all that bad. I suppose you did try to sharpen it somewhat so probably it could not go much further. The exposure actually came out quite fine as well and it reflects some great contrasts.
Very well done and TFS.

interesting shot. A bit out of focus, but as you said it was moving very quickly. So it is a good documentary shot with good colours and enough details to study the interesting anatomy of that centipede with its hind end resembling a head with antennae. Amazing to read your notes about the size of this centipede. It really looks dangerous.
Thanks, and best regards,

Excellent capture ! This animal looks really impressive on your photo ! Nice colors. Details could be sharper, but that is a minor details, it's sharp enought for us to see the animal. Just having been able to get such a shot of this animal is great. Well done !

Awesome centipede, is beautiful. very good capture, colours, and light, but I found it soft in focus, I think it needs a bit of Workshop.
Very nice photo. You're lucky to have this kind of animals in your contry. Here in Canada i never saw that. We have some "milles pattes", that's how we call it here, but they're a lot smaller, about 3 cm.
Great colors and good details. Is there an egg or a larva beside the centipede? It looks like this. Good work.

Great capture! Don't mind about poor focus: I know by experience about this centipedes.
One crossed over my hand while a was reading in summer!
In Spain I had seen only brown-yellow ones.

This is a colorful portrait of a centipede with lots of detail, enough to keep unwanted visitors warned. Quick reflexes were needed to capture this specimen. Well done.
