Centipede :(

Weekly Challenge ~ "Symmetry"
Sometimes you just have to forget about the rule of thirds, and just plop your focus dead center, just because it works.
Symmetry can come at a price; some may say itís not interesting enough or even boring.
Donít listen to that.
Subjects that work well with symmetry are landscapes and flora.
I think it works well with some architectural subjects as well.

Super symmetrical! Maybe Christine would be able to identify it...
carol j. phipps18-Jun-2012 05:35

Flo Hendry18-Jun-2012 05:03
Wonderful symmetry of this bug. Nice macro!
Tom Munson18-Jun-2012 03:12
Cool shot, Stephanie! I'd also guess House Centipede!!
Timothy Guenther18-Jun-2012 02:42
Common centipede and slightly venomous, although they rarely bite people. They do get as big as 6 inches long. Good macro; they are usually too fast to shoot!
BleuEvanescence18-Jun-2012 02:20
Héhéhééééé, oui!
Very symmetrical!
J. Scott Coile18-Jun-2012 01:21
So minutely symmetrical.
Pat nighswander18-Jun-2012 00:53

Yvonne17-Jun-2012 23:48
Sure is hairy... have no idea what it is, but its a great shot! v
sue anne17-Jun-2012 23:42
Yuck! I think it looks like one of those thousand leggers!
Sheila17-Jun-2012 23:18
What a terrific macro shot of this strange looking creature!
The nearest I can find is Scutigera coleoptrata, house centipede. But it isn't the one on Wikipedia :-)
Peggy W17-Jun-2012 22:23
Eww~ not sure what it is, but you captured its details fabulously.
Karen Stuebing17-Jun-2012 22:15
I think I'd have to go naked if I found that in my clothes. :) Well, he is symmetrical and this is a fantastic detailed close up. V.
Raymond17-Jun-2012 22:14
Oh boy, are you ever in deep ... whatever! Maybe you should sell your house while you can ... Ever thought of moving back to California? I think they are looking for staff at the American Artic Base ... McMurdo I think it is called!!!! I think it is a bedbug on Super Steroids and was crossed with a blood sucker specie ... it is higly venomous and its prefered food is .... rabbit! Other than that, great shot Stéphanie.
Patrick F17-Jun-2012 22:08
Fresh meat????? Clear shot of this hairy beast!!! BV
