Awesome pics! I'm just a bit jealous ;)

I'm pretty sure the mixed up file at the top is a "face shot" of the Argiope argentata :)

Thanks, y'all!

jbm- you're not very far away from locations where they run pretty thick.

Erik- that's the one...too many files to edit. I wish I had had the time to get shots of some of the smaller & lesser knwon arachnids, but watching FL wildlife this time of year will give you whiplash;)

Nice, Kukulcania are cool spiders. I used to collect them from my dad's garage. If someone is afraid of spiders, that isn't one they'd enjoy running in to, they're creepy looking :D

Kukulcania is about 2.25" leg span...while fast and kinda nervous, she isn't very defensive and will "strike a pose" when in a quiet setting while out of her enclosure. They remind me of Tegenaria minus the 'tude.
