September is Tarantula Month!

Tarantula at Ahmanson Ranch

Since 2005 these are the dates I've seen and photographed a tarantula at Ahmanson Ranch (Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve).

September 13 (2005)

Autumn is when maturing male tarantulas (Aphonopelma spp.) wander about in search of a mate.

The title photograph is from a run on Wednesday.
