AAACCK. I had forgotten that fall weather brings out the tarantulas. I was sorting green tomatoes to make relish when Ron tapped on the kitchen window and motioned for me to look. I grabbed the camera and hurried outside. As you can tell in the first picture, this baby was on the move and nearly crawled out of the frame before I could snap the shutter. Then it was on top of the landscape timber still moving at a blurr.
I tried to get Ron to stick his hand down to stop it but the best I could get him to do was put his foot in front of it.
Thankfully, these were taken in front of a neighbor’s home and the creepy crawlie was not on the move to my house. I never work in the garden without first swishing things around to make any tarantulas or snakes run the other way.
My momma didn’t raise a fool! ****UPDATE*** while I was writing this Ron pocked on the office window. It seems a family member was trying to climb up the wall of the house. By my bedroom….not sure I will get lots of sleep tonight.
