excellent shots
I had one at the foot of my bed this morning, on the carpet. At first, thinking it was a dead leaf, I flicked it away then, realizing what it was and knowing my mortal sensitivity to bee venom but not knowing how I'd react to a scorpion sting, I killed it with a wad of tissues, then took it onto the top of the toilet for my own white background shots.
