Coax
How did you coax this out of the nest? I've never seen one in it's turret, and I'd love to take some photos!

 
Nocturnal
We see them sitting at the opening at night. No coaxing involved, usually.

guess I'm going to have to let my buddies go home early, they're already kidding me about camping out on 4 mile hikes.

A lady on this group was asking me today about hikes that might have spider in them in our area. I found the Mid Pen address, but couldn't remember your name. Shall I connect you two up? I'm amateur compared to you in critters. (Your reputation precedes you).

Moved from ID Request.

Neat!
You are probably right about the ID, but I mostly just wanted to compliment you on this image! Spectacular.

 
yes, very cool!
That's a neat find.
Better not twitch your finger like an insect in front of the tube :-)
