Eyeing a Tarantula after Dark (Day 17, 2016)

Eyeing a Tarantula after Dark

Walking in the Amazon after dark is creepy, especially when you spot a few of these tarantulas in the trees. With some well placed light, I caught this one just hanging out in the trees. I lasted 10 minutes in the dark … too many big and little things with wings flying around my face, and what if this fuzzy tarantula decided to jump … no thanks!!
