The Southern Utah News Photo of the Week was taken by John Petrovic of Gurnee, Illinois, on a trip to Utah last year. John took this amazing photo of a scorpion climbing on a rock (with a blacklight shining on it). If that wasn’t incredible enough, he also caught the Milky Way high above the hills of Kanab on a dark, clear night. John calls this collection “Creatures of Utah.” You can view more on his website at:
