It’s Alive in Sydney: Sexy legs, sees

Bandangi Millipede 001

A millipede on a rock – in Badangi Reserve on the Lower North Shore of Sydney.

Taking this photo with a flash prompted me to ask Alex Wild (currently featured at SciBorg’s Photo Synthesis) if flash photography can harm or distress insects and other invertebrates. His answer – not that he knows*.

This critter did not curl up and die afterwards, at least not that I saw, so my conscience feels fine.

More millipede shots below the fold as I tested my camera out in the field.

Two different millipedes, can you tell them apart?

*Plus he kills many of his subjects after taking photos anyway. Woo! Etymology believes in a “tough love”.
