the tarantulas are late this year

Last weekend we hit the road and drove out towards Pozo to see if we could find and tarantulas. Their wanderings tend to build in number around the time of The Orionids which usually hit just before Halloween. We usually spy them around the first week of October so I packed both lenses and we headed out....

We saw quail, deer, turkeys, goats, cows, horses, magpies, and lizards....


But no Tarantulas.

So we enjoyed the drive and wished for rain...perhaps that is the kick in the pants they need to wander...

Here's hoping.
