Not as dangerous to adults as often thought but nasty when he stings.

That looks like something from a nightmare! I would say "good photo" but it is frightening!

The scorpion can hurt when defending itself. Good shot.

I've lived in one Phoenix home, two Glendale homes, one Vegas home, and now one Tucson home and I'm happy to say I've never seen one in or around my house. I've had neighbors and friends plagued with them but luckily not me.

Saw the thread title and wondered should I venture in and see what he captured... did I suspect it was going to be something like this ... at least it was worth it to see a quality shot but maybe next time hire a professional model

Live in Arizona, learn to check your shoes before putting them on. Neat photo!
