|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This nice creature is a House centipede, Scutigera coleoptrata. This is a fast running thing in dark corners, to take a picture of it, the animal was put in a glass dish. Two synchronous flashes, one from below and one from above in a 60° angle and covered with paper, a tripod, an old Edixa Mirror reflex with a Zeiss Tesslar helped to do the job. As you see,the cooperative animal is cleaning its antenna, so I did not have to worry about impurities. Enjoy!|
