These look like the worms that swallowed up the harvestors in Dune.
Mooi wurms Callie. Excellent DOF and POV. Good work

Ik moet gelijk aan vissen denken Callie. Van die zee pieren die je aan de haak moet doen. Very good composing shot, the pof is very good, the colours very nice, and the note very good, great job Callie

Love the metallic sheen of the worms contrasted against the great earthy colours of the sand.
They look as if they have been designed by an engineer.
Interesting note Callie.

Wow, Gerhard, 250 mm of milipede is enough for a barbecue.
Nice shot, good title, excellent note.
By the way, I agree very low light shots with S&H are usually noise, but sometimes they are not. I dont know the reason but I always try before giving up with a dark shot I like. Greetings.

Ha ha! I got the joke as soon as I saw it. Made me laugh. Very good photo, you should have put a tiny model man in to recreate the film. Good shot, thanks.

Callie, Great job on this..like this grouping offering the millipede from different POV's. Their dark color stands out in stark contrast on the red sand of the Kalahari..Very good detail & I really enjoyed your note..TFS!!

Good shot Callie.
Very good sharpness, composition, colours and a great note.
If you have a a very dark picture and used the S/H and it will be noisy. Sometimes it works to give it a little dose of NI before S/H to get rid of the noise in the dark parts.
Use the automatic profile in a dark part and draw the Y- control for amount to the left for less effect, the Y-control is normally in 70 %. I works sometimes but not always.

Deze konden niet wegvliegen om te fotograferen Callie, ik vind de zwarte wurms tegen de rood/orange achtergrond zeer mooi contrast.
Mooi werk zoals altijd.
The sharpness and the clarity are fantastic, excellent contrast!

Spore in die sand. I know these songololos well. I like the contrast of the colours and the "footprints" in the sand. I wonder if this a family outing?
I would like to have so many legs ;-) My life would be more easy ;-)
Great photo, very interesting and entertaining!

Is it Paul Atreides, there, on back of first from the left ;-) ? My wife hates sf literature [I love both - literature and wife ;-)] but she likes Dune very much. Good photo with story Callie!
The planet Arakis, home of the spice Melange!
One of the best Sci-fi books ever written. Next to Asimov's "Foundation" trilogy.
Callie I like this a lot, not only for the "Dune" connection but for it's artistic appeal. Much like the scorpion in the hole. They are unusually large though. Never seen one so big before.
my love for the "bible" of sci-fi - "DUNE", is your points!
