Got an Eye on You

Bridger spotted this large spider (is it a tarantula?) at night and placed a can over him so I could make his portrait in the morning.

I love its glowing, green eye! When I zoom in, the eye is faceted like a jewel. Chickens were milling around when I removed the can. The spider wisely held perfectly still as I snapped his photo, and the chickens did not spot him.
