  1. A very valuable addition! We don't have many scorpion photos, and of those many go unidentified. And thank you for your good deeds in cleaning up the mess of others, there's hope for humanity.

    PS: I recently bought a small UV light, wanting to try it in on our next trip in October to light up Scorpions. Hope we find many, and hope it works.

    1. I'm glad I could help! Most people I know cringe at the thought of approaching scorpions, snakes, and other "creepy-crawlies," but I think it is very important to document and learn what we can from ALL of Earth's beautiful creatures!

      As for cleaning up messes, it is something my husband and I do a lot of. I carry a bag with me at all times. Even some of the most remote places are littered! It is maddening!

      Your trip sounds AMAZING! Good luck!

      1. I love creepy-crawlies :). They are the best!

        What litter do you find most frequently? We find mostly plastic bags, plastic water bottles, junk mail, and balloons...I always carry a bag to pick it up too - every little bit helps ;)

          1. I sometimes find socks, which is weird. Definitely chip bags and granola bar wrappers. Humans :( Posted 4 days ago
