Kurt, wonderful series as usual.
I'm interested in knowing how do the scorpions react to light? (I'd assume you used a focusing light at night)
I attempted to shoot scorpions, but they always retreat into rock gaps once I shine my UV light at them.

Thanks for the comments, Travis, George, asty80, Bas, Hot.Shek.

Hot.Shek - the Lychas wasn't skittish at all at all but the other two were. Don't think it's the light, probably vibration

Amazing shots and as always educational. The treestump spider and "poltys" is a first for me again. Fantastic bit of camouflage.
