I found this yel­low scor­pion bask­ing on a flat stone near my home, and I de­cided to ex­per­i­ment with com­bin­ing two ex­po­sures so I could in­clude the sun. I used my zoom lens for the back­ground, and when I changed lenses to photograph the scor­pion it no­ticed the move­ment and raised its tail. I waited for it to set­tle be­fore tak­ing the shot, with the last rays of the sun light­ing its body.
