    Default Lurking in the dark

    ID: Scorpion(Specific id help appreciated)

    A frame of the scorpion, pretty lethargic one as it hardly moved much, probably due to the cold weather of the morning, sat under the shade of the rock, right next to the path of the trail. Though the overall trail had dried up with hardly any sightings, this awesome sighting made the whole effort of traversing the trail worth it.
    I wanted to capture some passerby, the local villagers who regularly move around carrying some wood, in the frame along with this beauty, unfortunately non passed this area and eventually I had to give up on it, settling for this frame

    EXIF:
    Canon 80D
    Canon 10-18 IS
    F/13
    Shutterspeed 1/6 sec
    ISO 200

    Rested on the floor, Fill-in flash fired

    Location: Nagla trail

    Special thanks to Anil Kumar Verma Sir for lending this Canon 10-18 IS, came in very handy for such frames

    Great sighting. Its so nicely camouflaged in the dried leaves. Resting the camera on the ground has helped, as the shutter speed was quite low. How did you spot it under the rock? Thanks for sharing.

    This tells a story. I think slightly more space on the left would have been great. Your wider compositions are better. Focus on that.
