Mexican golden red rump tarantula (Brachypelma albiceps) found in San Benito County outside of Tres Pinos, CA. October is migration season for tarantulas in San Benito County. This "little" guy was crawling down the side of the road. A quick stop, and some belly-crawling allowed an almost golden-hour sun to shoot a little warm light on the body of this spider as it headed into a pasture field.
