    Congrats especially on getting an Iridopelma to sit still. I was never very good at that trick.

    April did all that work, by the time I got over to photograph her she was calm. :D

    Thanks! Not long, just a few minutes to pop off a few shots. :)

    Those lights look just like Papilio's, are they same model etc?

    I love pics of gear and tarantula tanks out back..You have a lot, and I'm sure that's only a small portion of the collection!

    Yeah, after the right batteries. :eek: Well, ask April to get her out at the next meet up. :)

    Michael had those light for a short stint but I think he used them with the ring mount and ditched them pretty quickly.

    Whoa NICE pics of I mira, crispy! Any more pics of those "hanging" around? ;) I haven't seen many of them to begin with, are the typically a copper color like yours? It's very pretty, but the blue, well that seals the deal for me. Someday soon I'll get one.
