    Love the p. pulcher, psalmos are so photogenic, especially with such great camera work.

    Thanks very much louise! Pulcher slings are some of my favorites to photograph.


    Thank you Chris! :worship:


    :D


    Thanks a lot Oliver! And glad you like them for your wallpaper. :)


    Thanks much owlbear! Yes, they're beautiful!


    A generous compliment, thank you very much micheldied! :D


    You're too kind, my friend! :worship:










    Here are some images of one of the P. rufilata slings from Chad. They're monsters! :D

    At 2i, one of the slings displayed an almost versi-like blueness! The second set shows the same sling soon after its molt to 3i.

    And for a little variety, my pretty H. mac is now next to me at my desk, just a quick shot through the 1/4-inch acrylic.

    Even this scale shot makes it look bigger than it does in real life.

    I still say it looks like hairy jello.

    Once again though, your photography has amazed me.

    Those A versi pics are really impressive!! It's nice to see some whole body shots that aren't slings for a change, esp of this species. The colors are very very good.

    I would rate the first shot your best of these IF you have a version that is not cropped, assuming you cropped off the abdomen a bit?

    I may or may not have cheered like a little boy when I saw this thread get updated.
    That P.ornata is stunning, is it from your personal collection?

    Thank you Chad! :) I know, what was I thinking.

    Ha!! Nice one BobBarley. :D I was shooting with a Laowa 15mm Wide Angle macro, and she was constantly trying to climb up on the lens.
    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks so much Araneas! :D

    You do know how to make a guy's day Oliver! :)
    Yes she is, I just picked her up a couple of weeks ago. She'd just molted and I couldn't resist!

    Heteroscodra maculata, adult female
    I'd have to guess she's just about the most docile H. mac ever.
