It is tarantula season here on Spring Oaks Drive.
Lucky for us!
Our home is perched picturesquely at the foot of the mountain so we have more than our share of wild - and I emphasize wild - life showing up in our yard and even creeping onto the front porch. The pictured tarantula which we captured temporarily to show Dawson and Haydon, was rescued as it was trying to cross the warm asphalt road one evening. It is now happily living somewhere behind our house. The boys were not quite ready to hold Mr. T (well he was big, and colorful, and hairy) but Dawson got pretty close.
