Previous Centipede
7 of 20 from Miyajima

Scolopendra mutilans (Chinese Red-headed Centipede)

I liked this little guy - we don't have cenitpedes this size where I live and it moves in such a great way. I believe this was shot at f2.8, 1/20th of a second (on a tripod) so the depth of field isn't what I would have liked. I have to say, iNaturalist is amazing. Given a photo, it gets pretty close.
