[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Tarantula was crossing the road, it was big enough for us to notice it and stop for a couple shots, the red dot on the abdomen is a parasitic acari, tarantula and her guest made it safely to the other side.

trochę zdenerwowany jest ten pająk;-) Ale nieźle go uchwyciłeś, świetny POV. DOF jest bardzo dobry jak na takie ustawianie, widać szczegóły jego odnóży - włoski, i rudawą barwę. Naprawdę ciekawe zdjęcie, gratuluję!
TFS and regards

Hi Simon,
Really like your POV here, it makes the shot a great one.
Very good DOF, color, exposure, and details..
I've been looking for years here on our property for one of these.
Still looking ;-)
Well done!

Hi Simon
Unlike Howard I'd rather avoid them, especially when they sit on the ceiling above my cot, as it happened in the Amazone.
