  1. Hi Ernie, fantastic sequence of shots. I didn’t realise scorpions were quite so hairy. Thanks for the post, very interesting. I see you’re using a 35mm macro lens, how close are you having to get to get these shots?


    • These scorpions are pretty big, so not too close…maybe six or eight inches? This species isn’t very aggressive or dangerous, so I wasn’t concerned about getting stung. In the past I have photographed some very dangerous scorpion species. For those photos I used a longer lens and was very careful!
