|How could I have missed these?
These are some of the most beautiful of all Tarantulas.
H lividums, the Cobalt Blue. The colors are REAL, they are not enhanced in any way.
Strangely enough, these Ts, for all their incredible color, spend the majority of their lives in a burrow underground. I had to dig them out to make sure they were alive after the freeze. That's when I snapped one of the most gorgeous photos I've ever taken.
