My brother-in-law and I were visiting a ranch this past weekend seven miles east of Mount Hamilton, CA. September is when the male Tarantulas start looking for females and this one was heading across an open field in search of a future mate. We came across a few, while driving up to the ranch and back down, walking across the narrow two lane road. Being aware of my surroundings helped me see this Tarantula, everyone else just walked right by the spider not knowing it was there.

The iPhone 5s did a great job photographing this subject. Post processed in the Photoshop iPhone app.
