I dont have a black light and have never taken any pictures under black light. sorry.

Black lights also should <not?> be on scorpions for a long time as it can damage them

Try setting the ISO higher or something...

Most cameras only show the blue when photographing a scorp under blacklight . . . for an "automatic" camera, be sure to hold it extra-still (maybe bracing it on something) and making sure the scorpion doesn't move while having the flash turned off.

Turning off the flash in low light really increases the exposure time, so it's necessary to have a stationary subject.
