Macro of Scorpion

Here is a cropped photo of the front end of a living scorpion. It was taken with Q7, Pentax Q to K adapter, and the Da 35 2.8 limited with the Raynox DCR-250 attached. I have not used the Raynox much but I think it helped here.

Good use for adapted lens. The greater the working disance the better with this subject. We don't have scorpions here. Is it poisonous? Either way a good image.
