There is nothing that compares to sitting by a warm wood stove in the morning and reading a good book. However to reach that level of comfort there is a lot of work that goes into getting the wood stove going unless of course you are staying at a Swiss chalet and the staff was already up early getting the fire going for you. Yesterday morning when I was loading up the wood stove I noticed a hitchiker on one of the pieces of firewood that I was bringing into the house. Luckily I spotted the little critter or it might have made a quick trip to Hades. There was a Wood Scorpion hiding on the end of the log in plain sight. It was trying to look invisible by not moving. I slid it off into a a jar and this morning I photographed it on a rock before setting it free off in the woods far away from the house. May you have a blessed day and a glorious weekend, chris Image created with a Cann 7D anda 100mm macro lens. AV mode, ISO 400, F 16.0 at 1/6th of a sec.

  1. Very cool image of it! Another insect in sunrise or set. Great!

  2. Thanks Shelly. These are fun to set up and do. It helps to have a second person as an insect wrangler.
