Thanks everyone for the great comments,

@Hans, no it didn't survive, I always have a few plastic containers with me (with a hole in the top) to carry anything (some insects) I might find interesting home, so after it dropped over I put in into a container, and it never moved.

@Lou, the first shot was about 40cm the others around 4cm. But then it didn't move.

ps: what concerns those plastic containers, I keep them only till I get home and can take a few shots of them (outside), anything that crawls gets released (locally - or in a small park on the other side of the street (ex: larger spiders)) - anything that flies ...

and he's just waiting to be released before springing back into action. Watch your backside Ronny

Those are some incredible shots of an incredibly ugly insect. I knew they would be when I saw the subject and I was somewhat delaying looking at them. Had to steel myself to look at what reminds me of a horror movie. But technically they are just awesome, the stacking worked really, really well and you can see an incredible amount of detail (too much for me, actually). Well done!
