This is for you, Mom. We tried to save this one and just throw it over the fence since you made me feel a little bad about killing the last one, but...

We were sitting by the pool yesterday afternoon when I saw this little guy in our yard. He was about five feet away and running straight at us! I don't even want to think of what would have happened if I hadn't seen him coming at us. It's not every day that you yell, "Ah, tarantula!" I got better pictures of this one than the last one so I wanted to share some. This makes three tarantulas that we have seen in our yard or on our street. The one good thing about seeing these tarantulas and other huge spiders all the time (the huge spiders are usually inside our house) is that it's making me less afraid of the little ones. And I'm pretty proud of myself for getting close enough to even take some pictures.
