Another pool ‘rescue’, but not really a rescue, as this fella ended up under my foot! There aren’t many critters that I would rather see dead than alive, but I have to admit that a scorpion is one of them. Not large, a little bigger than my thumb-nail, but he can still give quite a bite, and this fella wasn’t being given the opportunity! He wasn’t too happy at having his picture taken, either, he was determined to advance down the stick to my hand, so it was a case of taking a couple of very quick images, and then a swift disposal!
