They’re All Pointy Ends

A centipede is trapped under a drinking glass, resting on an index card with blue line running underneath it. The centipede has one antenna contorted between its mandibles, perhaps cleaning itself.
Centipede in a glass…glass of emotion?

First centipede on the site! I’ve hardly seen any over the years (not that I sought them out), and they usually move too fast for my setup, but this one was a little too bold in the house and it was captured. It took me a long time to figure out he wasn’t missing an antenna but was cleaning(?) it. Its tucked into those gnarly pincers. (Second photo below)

Different angle of the same centipede in the previous photo. It now as its other antenna twisted downard and inside the mouthparts.
