Hi everyone, i have always wanted to take pictures of my tarantula (b. smithi, have an A. Geniculata on the way) because i have relitives and people who want to see my spider but do not visit often. Also to post on forums such as these so people can help me if i have problems with my tarantula that can be visibally identified. Anyways, i have a good digital camera but will the flash bother my tarantula? I know if i was sitting in the dark most of my life and someone flashed me id be pretty mad, let alone blinded! =). So let me know please if the flash bothers tarantulas or if the best thing to do is get as much light on them as possible and take the picture without a flash?
