Got to love the P.mets.
I'm not a Poeci guy, but my metallica never fails to make me question why that is..absolutely gorgeous spiders, great pics!
How did you get those awesome pics? Did you take your Gooty out on the floor?
How did you get so close to the female in the last pic? Damn, I can count her eyes!!
Yes, I take my Tarantulas out for photo shoots... My rig is quite bulky with the flash and diffuser. I use a Canon DLSR camera, and for that close up shot I added a Raynox 250 macro clip on which magnified the image. That picture is just using the kit lens, I just got a Tonika macro lens with much better clarity that has twice the magnification. Should be fun...
It is awesome, my friend. Still can't believe you got a p. Metallica to behave.
Not all but a lot of tarantulas are less defensive out of their territory (enclosure). These guys were just flighty not defensive. Luckily, tarantulas have poor endurance. I had to keep catching them in a cup and replacing them in the ideal spot. They eventually will get tired and just sit. The photographer just needs a lil patience.
