Thankfully Tarantula Hawks at least are pretty inoffensive critters*. They are mighty impressive on first view as they cruise by - giant buzzing black ( metallic blue, but it looks black at a distance ) and orange nightmares. But typically they are on ignore most of the time and scarcely seem to notice you, even if you are chasing them with a net. Now the Western Horse Fly
-that guy I'll run from.
* Unless you're a tarantula, then all bets are off.
