I Ain't Touching That Thing! - Shadow Shot Sunday


None of the kids would actually touch the poor little millipede - but they were worried about it being out in the sun.
They tried to pick it up with their shadow hands, but it kept getting away!

(We finally picked it up with a piece of paper and put it into the shade).

  1. Oh, my goodness--I watched you take this shot and didn't realize how absolutely amazing it would look on film.

    WOW! Sissy! This is Extraordinary--and it fills my eyes.

    How wonderful dramatic!

  4. That's a fun photo! It can be tricky to pick things up with shadow hands! Glad some paper was on hand. Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

  5. LOve the photo. That looks more like a broken chain link, (the silvery color) than a millipede. I guess I'd use paper as well. Do millipedes bite?

    Peace.

  7. Some of these are not safe to handle but I don't know which it is.

    Thanks for the visit.

    I am trying to get all my birds on the bird blog. At least three of a kind and five if I have photos of both sexes. So you came in when I was working on that.

  8. Great shadow shot! Thanks for your visit. Did it roll up when touched?

  9. GROSS...however, back in the day this poor creature would've probably been in a jar in my room, to the horror of my Mom...cool shadows!

  10. Very cool shadow image! The millipede is probably very thankful to have been put back into the shade. =)

  11. Hi,
    Great shot and great story too! At school today, the children that I teach found a snail on the grass-it looked dead but was fully out of its shell which I thought was strange-it was a plastic one!
    Thanks for visiting!
