That's a very interesting and original posting. I never have seen this behaviour either. Must have been very fascinating to look at this strange ballet! A very good picture, like always and a very precious document.
Un grand merci

This is something I have never seen before either,not least because I have only ever seen millipedes beneath logs and rocks,doing their very best to avoid being exposed to daylight.
These do look like unusually large millipedes too.
Thanks for sharing this excellent picture.

It's very interesting, but the subject does not attract me, on the contrary!
But, it's a good shot!!!

This is an excellent capture. I have never seen anything like it before and i am thankful to you that i can learn something about these species today.Lovely notes and POV. The colors and tones are natural and fresh. Looks like the rain just did it's work as the sand around the millipedes looks wet. Nice sharpness and exposure. TFS.

Fascinating! This is something I would love to see - I imagine it would be hypnotic and hard to leave. Excellent capture of the action with all the ingredients of a mana picture. The colors, details, and composition are all outstanding.

What a lovely design they make...this is sort of Markus but with living creatures. Not only does ones eyes change the view but every a nanosecond, each change in each insect..all changes and is flowing...wow!

We hardly get to know when you're on!
A superb shot (I think I've missed a few shots of yours, too)!
I love the simplistic composition...But the thought of having so many of these so close by seems frightening!

Hola Sr. Sumon.
I have seen "Milpies" here too, but not in a reunion with a lot of friends. I like the way they "Twist" if You touch them. Am I right?
Great photo Sumon. Excellent note.
Saludos My friend.

I have been away for three weeks and work my way through the photos posted.
I hope that you are not unwell, having not added an image to your portfolio since October!
Funny - I posted a collage about millipedes at my return see link Link
- and the handling of these animals, particularly the dead, red one caused me rather unpleasant blisters...
The behaviour described in your notes is very interesting, and I have added the image to my theme about Animal Behaviour.
Have a nice week-end

Very interesting shot, and I add your work to my theme "Animals' Behaviour, part one"
We have in South Africa millipedes, which look alike and their common name is chongololo. I have to wait for somebody climbing the book shelves to get my book and look up for you the proper name...
They curl up like ammonites when in danger and squirt some smelly excretion, and when toddlers put a chongololo in their mouth, their poor lips start foaming, and after a few days they look like Lepers :-)
Thanks for sharing
