Scorpions on a stick, Beijing, China, March 2009. I saw something fascinating in the Beijing market: live scorpions stuck through with a stick and then roasted over a grill. I tried to make a movie of the scorpions struggling around on the stick, but my camera movie resolution is too low to see them move their pincers and legs. In any case, here is a shot of the scorpions on the stick. You should try them. They're crunchy! (I felt sorry for the sea horses though). Here are other images of this visit to China in March & April 2009 including Wuhan, Xian & surroundings, Zhengzhou, Beijing, Hangzhou, Nanjing and Shanghai.
