We have loads of these nasty little critters living around us. Most of the time they are outside but quite frequently we find them in the house. Thankfully, most of the time we find them by means other than being stung. If you’ve not been stung by a scorpion, consider yourself lucky since it is not one of life’s more pleasant experiences.
This particular shot was taken while I was doing yard work one weekend. On moving a piece of wood, I discovered that I had disturbed this guy during breakfast. I dashed for the camera, stuck the Tamron 90mm macro on it, set up a single off-camera flash and got a couple of decent shots before the scorpion headed off. It left before I had a decent lighting setup done so the shadows are a bit nasty here but I’ll live with that over the alternative of not getting the shot at all.
