Very good set of shots - I especialy like the last t a good use of depth of field and a really interesting and colourful subject - is that a baby spider behind or a male - or another species ?

I am almost certain that the smaller spider in number 7 is a male. I have never seen a male that small but close to it. I only thing is that in all the other nest there were no other males, seeing im pretty sure breeding season is coming to a end, and typically the females will eat the males after breeding.

In my opinion, number 7 is the strongest of the lot. The composition and especially the angle are different from what you typically see for these kinds of subjects, which sets this image apart. The main subject seems to be in perfect focus, although a bit more of DOF would have maybe helped here (e.g., the legs closer to the lower part of the image are a bit soft). I like that you only find the smaller spider after taking a closer look. The bokeh is cool, yet I can't decide whether the lighter background helps the cause (by making the subject more clear) or if it is a bit distracting. In any case, I really like the end result.
