    This first is Chad's rare and very unusual Pachistopelma bromelicola. It's tough to see in a photo but in real life the very flat carapace is quite striking.

    One of my favorite terrestrials, I shot this juvie female Brachypelma albopilosum at a local pet store.

    And one of the 2i Psalmopoeus pulcher slings I picked up from Chase, these playful little guys will always be a favorite to photograph.
