A superb portrait taken from a great POV on the sandy BG with fine sharpness to show the features of this N. African species of Scorpion in an excellent way.
A fine illustration of this scorpion.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Great photo of this scorpion. Beautiful natural camouflaged colours. Excellent POV and sharpness. Beautiful DOF in the photo.
excellent shot for buthid scorpion with great informative notes on Moroccan scorpions. sharp details, POV, sandy composition and exposure wonderful. Since my wife is scorpion specialist; I am also interested scorpions and read many literature about Moroccan scorpions for comparison Turkiye and other Western Palaearctik countries fauna. you are right, there are many species in there and some of them newly described. thanks for sharing, have a good night my friend
What an awesome capture of this Scorpion.
Exposure and sharpness are good and the colour looks natural.
This would have made hunting Tiger Beetles a bit scary I would think.
Cheers & TFS

Superior information...I have never seen in actuality nor would I want to....I have heard horror stories..Iwill not try to ever take this image unless I am captured by Mexican drug cartels....but that is unlikely!

A very fine close-up of this nasty little animal! One that I hope not to stumble upon! You must watch out while lying down in the sand photographing Tiger Beetles! It is certainly nicely camouflaged on the sand! Well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Radomir . This is a fantastic close up one i would not have done. You must know what you are up to when near scorpion. You have taken a good low POV on the sand. with good detail and natural colours. Interesting notes too. Well done tFS.

A very interesting and dangerous post here!
I really like both your picture and your excellent note on Maroccan scorpions.
Very good details here and terrific low POV that gets us right next to your subject and lets us explore it so well.
Very good DOF, as well as overall lighting.
Bravo and TFS

Nigdy nie widzialem skorpiona w naturze i jakos nie pale sie do takiego spotkania :-) Ten tu wyglada raczej groznie. Zdjecie bardzo ladne, zwierzak ostry. Jak zwykle ciekawa notka. Pamietam jeszcze te skorpiony z Syluru z ksiazek czytanych w podstawowce :-)
Well taken, good detail.

A very sharp and stunning photo of one of my least liked insects.If they are anything like the scorpions we have further south in South Africa/Namibia then this one is not a deadly variety - usually those with big pincers are less poisonous as they rely on their pincers rather than their venom to catch prey.

I can see the deadly sting of the Scorpion tucked away at the end of its diabolic tail, Radomir. I know how dangerous this fellow is: we have plenty Scorpions in our country.
The image is well captured against the background of sand. Your images of insects are always perfect and this one is no exception.
Well done and TF sharing another subject from Morocco.

Simply amazing presentation of this dangerous insect. Your POV, pose of the insect, farming and composition of the shot as well as DOF and sharpness are excellent. It seems to me that contrast and exposure are not optimal. However, these are not a key point of this stunning shot. TFS.
