John Steiner, the blogger behind Journeys With Johnbo, has this prompt he calls Cellpic Sunday in which he asks us to post a photo that was taken with a cellphone, tablet, or another mobile device. I thought this might be fun so I decided to join in.
This photo was taken using my iPhone the night before last while I was taking my dog out for her final walk of the day.
This time of year is mating season for tarantulas in my neck of the woods. That means it’s not uncommon to see those scary looking, enormous, hairy spiders crawling around as the male tarantulas are out looking love. They can sniff out female tarantulas who are burrowed in holes in the ground.
So far this year we have come across five tarantulas in our back yard. My dog spotted this one before I did and she stopped and just stared at it. I shined my headlamp at the big spider and whipped out my iPhone and snapped that picture.
Then we proceeded with her walk and by the time we got back to our yard, the tarantula was gone. Maybe he got lucky and found his mate.
If you wish to participate in this fun cellphone photo prompt, please click on the link to John’s post at the top of my post to see his photo and to read his instructions.
