I was in Arizona for the American Tarantula Society convention and had the chance to go on the field for some shots.

I was quite thrilled as I have seen what was on the top of my wish list!

What I wanted to see most were uropygi and amblypigi, so here they are, plus a few more

1. Mastigoproctus giganteus

Lovely series and some great finds. I'll put Arizona on my list of places not to go to :) - looks too dangerous

Lovely set of pics and what a weird set of bugs - spiders look decidedly dodgey lol

Clearly you don't work for the AZ tourist board but interesting selection.

thank you everyone for looking and commenting!

I hope you guys will still go to Arizona, it is wonderful! And there is really no danger there (well, I did almost step on a rattler!), you have to lift rocks and logs to find these!
