Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Found this centipede relative on my front porch and caught it in a jar. We see lots of them inside the house; they collect wherever there's moisture and bugs which they eat. We also call them 'scooters' or 'walking eyelashes.' Scutagera coleoptrata; body is about one inch long. Used my macro lens on this.

Thank you, Soldier! Yes, they are majorly fast; that's why I had to capture this one in a jar before I could capture it on camera. Something with that many legs, you would expect to be fast! And if one ever walked across my face, you would hear me yell all the way over to your place!

Thanks! We live with 'em, might as well photograph 'em! (Actually, they have 15 pairs of legs, so 30 in all.)

Great shot, I love it, but then, I like spiders and other things generally considered creepy....LOL It would be a great subject for a question on a game show. (What has 28 legs?)
