    Big Girl

    This female tarantula (the male of this species is purple black) was walking across my lawn yesterday. She is 16cm or six inches long. I escorted her to thicker foliage. In the open she could be attacked by an Andean Motmot or a Tarantula hawk wasp. A6000 with 24 1.8

    That geometric structure on the back of the fovea looks cool.

    Love it and I know I would have caught it to get more shots of it a few times over.
    But thats me.
    More than a well done on this.
    I like to get shots of bugs and insects while I know this one would be on the larger side of the insect market.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.
