    Rehoused a bunch of smaller tarantulas today, so I got the camera out for the ones which were in a good mood.

    Haplocosmia himalayana (Pocock, 1899). Suspect female. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite species in my collection. If the market was not flooded with slings, I would really love to take a shot at breeding them.

    Ephebopus murinus (Walckenaer, 1837) with its pet mite, which it has had it since i got it as a sling. Does not seem to be interested in leaving.

    Thanks, glad you liked them! I am using an old Nikon d70s with a 105mm Nikon macro lens. I used to have an external flash, but it died in the Indonesian jungle - so I only have the built in flash for now.

    Another rehouse photography opportunity. One of my absolute favorite species in my collection, which has not been very available lately. Hopefully I will be able to sex it at some point and get some breeding going.

    Took some pictures while feeding last night.

    Ybyrapora diversipes (C. L. Koch,1842) - large sling starting to get its colors, probably a male.

    Poecilotheria ornata Pocock, 1899 - small adult female. Really a stunning species. Still cannot understand why I waited so long to get this one. One or two more molts and we might have to start looking for a suitable date.

    Xenesthis immanis (Ausserer, 1875) - sub-adult female. It is cool to see the colors come in more and more on this one. [​IMG]

    Monocentropus balfouri Pocock, 1897 - unsexed juvenile. Fingers crossed for a female.
    [​IMG]

    Homoeomma sp. blue peru II - large sling starting to gain some colors.
    [​IMG]

    Encyocratella olivacea Strand, 1907 - juvenile, looks female, but I am hoping for a male.
    [​IMG]

    Grammostola pulchra Mello-Leitão, 1921 - One of five slings I am raising. Their feeding response is amazing. They will all grab the crickets directly from the tweezers before they even have a chance to hit the ground.
    [​IMG]

    Kochiana brunnipes (C. L. Koch, 1842) - Small juvenile. Really hoping this is a female.
