While trying to keep up with Orlando, who insisted on not only breaking into random sprints, but jumping off boulders to do 360 rotations before coming down, I was pleased to find him stopped dead in his tracks, pointing at the ground. I caught my breath and identified the Tarantula Hawk dragging a small paralyzed Tarantula across the trail. I kept what I hoped would be a safe distance, not knowing how they behaved with a mouthful, and used zoom in the low light to get a shot. Blurry is better than stung.
