This is quite a common species. I often find centipedes when I am searching rotten logs, etc. for macro subjects. The trouble is that they invariably move very fast and even getting them in the frame seems impossible.

This was a very different scenario. When I picked up the log, to search for slime moulds, this individual was fully exposed and immobile. It remained so while I took a dozen or so shots and was still absolutely motionless when I replaced the log where I found it.

I thought that this individual must have been about to moult and I expected to find an empty skin the next morning. I did not, there being no trace of the centipede.

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, plus a Raynox MSN-202 supplementary for the closer shots. Triple TTL flash.

Well done centipedes in the UK are quite tricky to photograph well.
