Tarantula season

A few photos from a recent trip to the Henry W. Coe park in the hills south of San Jose, CA:

Olympus 3040. A bit passe by today's standards, weak zoom, but still works okay.

The first two were. It was a challenge to get a few inches in front of their faces and have enough time to position the camera and allow for the shutter lag. Patience is recommended.

The third tarantula was in a cage. The ranger pulled it out and let me play with it a bit. It was very furry, light, and it felt a bit like a touch of a cat rubbing lightly against you as it passes by.

Tarantulas don't bite unless in self-defense or for food. As long as you're gentle with them, they're of no threat to you.

Tarantulas give me the willies. I don't like spiders.
