Wichita Mountains Red Tarantula – Headshot (Chelicerae)

Post on October 2, 2012 Spider BugsMacro


Not the most appealing spider for up-close headshot, the Wichita Mountains Red Tarantula Chelicerae are hairy and dull in color but they are huge! I didn’t have my MPE-65 with me so it was taken with 180mm and 2x III.
