    I've been dying to post something in this forum (no pun intended). I snapped these photos last night. I tell you it takes a lot of courage to get close and personal with a 50mm lens to something like that:

    Yeah I was crapping myself. A friend in the know though assured me that the bite takes 1-2 hours to kill and the hospital was not too far away. Still...

    Noone has ever died from a tarantula bite, nor probably ever will, their venom is too weak. ;) Just thought Id toss that fact your way.

    Now black widows, Brazilian wandering spiders and Sydney funnel webs are another story.
