An arachnid species special for #Arachtober on a creature you may be surprised to here is found in the UK, the Yellow Tailed Scorpion. Covering where they live, how they feed, courtship and their lifecycle.
Back in May, I got the only opportunity to photograph one of my favourite insects, a scorpiongly. Despite that scorpion like tail on the male, they can not sting. They are fantastic exotic looking insects, that feed on dead flies etc, often stealing them from spiders webs!
Some more white background photos, this time of the aquatic predator, a water scorpion Nepa cinerea.
