Mexican Red-rump tarantula (Brachypelma vagans), near Armenia, Cayo District
Fishing for tarantulas! Four female Cinnamonís (Crassicrus lamanai) and a couple of Mexican Red-rumps later, the two species completely sympatric and easy to find in communities of dozens of closely spaced burrows, I had my first specimen ready for the tutelage of Piotr Naskrecki, the master of macro wide angle images. While Piotr wrangled this guy for me, I used the built-in macro setting on my camera to get this shot at f8.0, 1s, ISO 100.
