Hi there arachnid owners! I want photos of your enclosures!

I don't imagine you guys get requests like this often but I am an art student in my last year of school and I am making an animated short film about spiders. Seeing as how spiders tend to not be the most popular subject matter I am struggling a bit in finding good reference images for me to draw from. I would be really thankful if the members of this forum would post some images of their terrariums and vivariums. Especially if you have a room with several enclosures, images of that whole room would be particularly helpful.

The specific spiders in my story are

Jumping spider (not sure what specific kind yet)
Six-eyed sand spider
Orb weaver (maybe a golden silk orb weaver but I'm not sure yet)

Any pictures of the enclosure for those types would be super appreciated but anything is helpful!

Also if there is any issue with me posting this here let me know

If you are curious about the kind of work I do you can see my website here: https://illustrator-animator-ashley.squarespace.com/
I've done some comic retelling of fairy tales but with bugs and lots of other stuff

@papilio is the best macrophotographer I've seen. He has some great pics https://www.flickr.com/photos/_papilio

And @mygale was inspired by papilio and does incredible work as well, he takes pics of Ts in different poses at times than papilio, he also has some nice looking viv's too further back in his list

Thanks! Some of those images will be helpful, a few tarantulas and scorpions may creep into the background images in my animation, they just don't get to be main characters. I'm glad you enjoyed the stories, the ladybug one was lots of fun to write.
