    I was with friend so spaced off setting the camera correctly but this one came out kinda OK. (proof I'll stoop to using ANY excuse! :D)

    I thought they were cool (even though I forgot to set the camera's aperture) because you can kinda tell he's using his front paws (do spiders have paws?) to sense vibration across the main net he wove.

    Hard to get a sense of perspective on that; how big is he? (She?)

    I think the body is real close to 1.5cm in length (which is about 1/2 an inch). I guess if we put him on The Rack we could get a 5cm spread from his two longest opposing legs before there was trouble for the little guy. I dunno if it's a male or female - nor how to tell. I think it's done by looking at the joint that attaches the main body to the butt - on the underside. If someone knows for sure please chime in - by all means.

    There's 4 or 5 more of him but they were all shot at 3.5 (silly me) so they're not real great. :p
