    In case it is not immediatly recognisable (by anyone other than me :) this is a picture of a section about 2mm wide of the underside of the head of a centipeid about 12mm long and shows the mouth parts and the front legs that have been adapted to work as venom carrying fangs. I will try and post the top view if and when the processing ends. It is shot with a 4x reichert infinity corrected microscope lens on bellows with a sony a700.

    Unfortunatly the diffuser didnt work as hoped, i have to get another method of lighting, so it has rather a lot of blown out highlights and glare.

    Holy man - that's creepy! I HATE bugs!

    With that said, I truly admire your photography skills! The detail (though I can't look at it for too long, *shudder*) is amazing!
