Round one - The tarantula hawk is trying to take down the tarantula. According to the artist and wildlife expert a tarantula hawk will paralyze it's victim with a bite and lay eggs in him - Eeeww!
Round two - The tarantula got away, until the artist captured him under a bucket for later observation.
Oh my gosh...nightmares!!! I'm not usually the kind of girl who is freaked out by spiders, but I am now!!!If you took those you are one brave cookie!!
Eeww. Great photos but these things give me the heeby jeebies.. Ugh.

O. M. G.
Oh wow, that is amazing. If I had seen that I would have fainted. Sad, but true, I'm so weak.
now that is one creepy halloween tale! ewww.
My kids would be on the side of the spider... they love tarantulas and they are not fond of tarantula hawks.Great wildlife post!
How gruesomely appropriate!
Ew I cannot even imagine living somewhere where those things are a common occurrence. Yuck yuck yuck.

That's a huge spider! I think I would have been running away. :) Nah. maybe not. . .aren't boys great!
Okay, this creeped me out!Thanks for commenting on my blog...can't wait to read your One Month post!
OMGosh!! l'd freak!!
Ay-yi-yi!!!Poor thing! The crunching totally shivers down my spine.
How are you? Hope you are having a great weekend. I didn't participate in PSF this week and I sure missed it!
Yes, Tarantula Hawks do exactly that. It's like a really bad horror movie. Sometimes Mother Nature is rather horrifying. My son Jacob hates Tarantula Hawks for that very reason and he is quite good at swatting them out of the air with his hands. He's so quick they are generally dead by the time they hit the ground.
ugh! I HATE spiders.... but that thing is super scary!
I don't know which is worse. The tarantula or the hawk. *shudder*
