Determination: Tarantula in a tree

Posted by : Helen : (is currently photographing in, Australia) on 31 July 2012 in Animal & Insect.

I am not a spider lover. Never have been.
I chose this photo as I only have it due determination. Determination not to miss out. Determination to do something I really wasn't comfortable doing.
This photo was taken at night in the jungle of Borneo. I was invited to go on a night trek ... not on a nice dry path, but wading through the swamps. I was a little tetchy about wading through the water and what might end up in my boots.
If I had known there would be tarantulas in the trees .......

This counts very much for "determination". I know well about the sensation you must have had here - small "normal" i can face now and come very close - but with this big lady? oO.

As for the spider - Ick. For your flash, I recommend a bounce card.
