    Don´t be affraid!

    Arturo,

    don´t be alarmed!- That´s just a drone!
    (generation 3.0) carrying a little chrony,
    camera and mic!- I noticed myself that,
    since that we-spy-anything puppet-theatre
    of the NSA and all that blew up and everybody
    knows now:

    Guess what: Never before we encountered that
    many Wasps as in this years summer!- Just
    AFTER all that came out!.. Yep, those are spying
    anything with their cameras! M´serious!

    In your case the problem is that you never miss!
    And that´s what makes them jealous, for sure.
    They plan to implement your skills into drones of
    the 5th generation.

    The only way to stop them is to willingly miss at
    least every 100th shot, wearing an aluminum hat
    whilst shooting, so they won´t know you WANT to miss.

    M´sorry!

    Be ;)

    here is the land of the ALACRAN LOL !, yes more painful than a bee sting ! fortunately these native specimens aren't deadly for humans ... unfortunately there is also an hybrid (the black one) due irresponsible introduction of a Mexican scorpion very poisonous which can easily kill a baby or a pet
    needs much care to grab the balls, I've got "vaccinated" a couple of times LOL !
    Cheers

    Yeesh! The only Scorpions I like feature Klaus Meine as a lead singer ;) I doubt you'd find them in your catchbox. Thankfully the scorpions we have in Oregon tend to be found only in the more dessert-like areas of the state, not in my area. That said, we do have to watch for them when we're in those areas - they like to crawl into shoes. How you can hold that in your hand is beyond me :eek:

    this are nocturne creatures, during day they hide below or inside rock cavities, unfortunately for this guy he choose to rest between backstop folds and received a shoot shock ... anyway desert here is quite healthy only this bad guy and a spider (Loxosceles laeta) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilean_recluse_spider

    Loxosceles...the "brown spider". we have a lot around here. and also Phoneutria, the "armadeira", jumping spider. AND THE YELLOW BRAZILIAN SCORPION, Titus serrulatus.
    I love creepy creatures. In medical college I was known as the best identifier of poisonous bites ever. Even the chief of emergency used to call me ti see a spider or snake! (good times....I'm feeling old.)

    Our most dangerous is the Brown Recluse and the Black Widow. That and we have rattlesnakes too. Other than that, we're a fairly safe place to be.

    Yep, we've got a bunch of creepy characters here in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona: scorpions, a dozen varieties of rattlesnake, Coral snakes, Recluses, Widows, Gila Monsters (a venomous reptile). You name it, we've got it. Surprisingly I've only ever found one scorpion in the house and only been stung once (EXTREMELY painful, but didn't make me sick or anything). Over the years of hunting and hiking, I've run across several rattlers. They tend not to start rattling until you're right up on them, unfortunately. Fortunately, I always carry a revolver with snake shot when I'm out on the desert.

    in the past was never reported a death due the native alacran but the hybrid is much more dangerous despite very low interaction with humans, the loxoceles is quite more dangerous, my wife got a bite over her calf, turned black several month and an ugly scar ... ha LOL doc I would not like to be alone in the deep amazonas !! I am a coward !! LOL

    Actually....scorpions are arachnids. Subclass of Scorpionids. They can survive a nuclear apocalypse together with cochroaches.:eek:

    Sorry to correct you!

    Lots of Black Widow spiders around my house back home. I was bitten in the back of the neck a few years ago (a very bad experience), so now I am extremely cautious when reaching into my catch box. I never want a repeat!
