Threat pose, male Mexican Red-rumped Tarantula (Brachypelma vagans), Sittee River Wildlife Reserve. He wouldn't attack unless I pissed him off, I just got too close with the lens for his comfort... a few minutes after this he was in my hand.

Scientists donít immerse themselves in particulars only for the grandiose (or self-serving) reason that such studies may lead to important generalities. We do it for fun. The pure joy of discovery transcends import.

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.
