It is unusual for centipedes to co-operate but this one stayed still long enough for a couple of photos which I then stacked and it went to explore on flickr. To help overcome the small size of my garden I have blueberries etc in pots and some of them have newspaper round the plant to suppress weeds, this is a great habitat for woodlice, springtails and of course centipedes etc. I have quite a few pots so I can leave them alone for weeks between photo shots. The biggest disadvantage is that it a) it looks untidy and b) sometimes family members remove them when I am not looking

I thought that this springtail had also been good but I discovered that is antennae were different in every single shot of the 10 I took - never mind still a nice specimen, from the top of my water butt. I regularly find about 4-5 species in the garden but only this one is on top of the water butt.
