Nocturnal Claws, Centipede (Chilopoda) - DSC_8228

Clasped onto a branch, this centipede basking in the early morning sun was fast asleep and caught my eye with it's bright orange hue, quite unlike most other centipedes. I chose a rare closeup view of the nocturnal anthropod's venom claws - one you'd never see when it is awake.
