Mega Scorpion at night, Uraba, Colombia
During an epic night tour in Uraba, we were still pumped from two consecutive snakes found in mere minutes, when I spotted this unusually large scorpion only a few inches from my head sitting on the bark of a tree. The photo is rotated and HDR processed. Of course, macro blows up the size of this scorpion, but it truly is large as evidences by the ant you can see directly below its stinger :)
