It is fascinating to see this creature so close up. I wish the entire scorpion was in focus but I love the background. Great texture and color. I wonder - Where was this taken?



Oh la la! The creature looks like its reputation, menacing!

I like that you got the tail so well displayed. The shiny armour belies the fact that scorpions supposedly will kill themselves, when no exit exists. Good macro. Good compo.
Tfs Jose, Jay

Hello Zeca,
A fine capture of this scary little fellow!
Great focus on subject, details really come out well...
Good composition with dynamic lines!

Hello Jose Augusto,
Oh, I’m glad to see this specimen because I had this incredible chance to hold one in my hand recently and it was kind of a unique experience. I went to this entomologist's house to take pictures and the guy knows these animals so well that he can prepare them to be hold by human without any risks. So, I hold a black Scorpio in my hands: )

This is a nice capture of this creature. I like this lightning and composition. If you could have used a smaller aperture, the whole animal would have been very sharp. Thanks for sharing this fascinating creature with us.

Hola Zeca,
Interesante captura de este escorpión a contraluz y de lado, se aprecian muy bien los detales de su anatomía. El marco oscuro y las letras combinan bien con el resto de la imagen.

Hi José Augusta
Belle et intéressante composition macro-photographique bien réalisée pour cet étrange insecte que l'on ne voit pas souvent sur le site.. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté.
Merci et au revoir...JP
Les sourires demain

Yuhuuu. This is a fantastic Tityus bahiensis!!! Where did you find it? Tamandua? I had never seen one of these. I am used to find some Tityus serrulatus at my backyard, some times visiting inside home. They are more poisonous than your friend here, but also uglier. This is certainly a beautiful animal! I wish I was with you! Did you know that these cute animals are terrified when facing a praying mantis? Our Bruce Lee of bugs just loves to eat them. And they are poison free...fantastic. There is another animal that scorpions are even more frightened about: hens.... Fantastic shot Mr. Zeca!!!

Jose Augusto,
A gente em Portugal chame esto bixo "Lacrao".
A sting from this fellow can leave you in pain for days.
An extremely well focused TAIL. Dynamic.!!!
To the point. Very original.
Love this composition.
Best regards,
