Well,

Need I say more?

-Don't forget to post which cameras are being used.

Here is my submision. I'm using a Canon PowerShot A85 with no macro lens. I need to get one of those soon.

You have quite good camera but you have done hopeless photo. Look at this. It is a sling B. smithi about 1'' leg span. I used Canon Powershot A60.

L. difficilis

I used my Minolta DiMAGE F300 for this one...I am just getting used to it, but I like the detail it picked up in this pic....the Lasiodora difficilis sling in the pic is about 0.75-1" legspan...

Pushing my setup to the limit so it looks a bit rough :D (need to save up for a focus rail :( )

Canon EOS300D, Canon 100mm F2.8 + 50mm of extension and 550EX flash.

How much would a camera like that cost?

Sharp shot Cire. I like it.
Thanks...I just started taking pics of some of my Ts...they're such "willing" subjects sometimes...other times they just like to cower in corners it seems! ;)

About US$750 for the camera (dead money :( ), US$400 for the lens (sound investment :) ).

My Canon PowerShot A60 costs only $333 in Poland about year ago.
And this is B.smithi almost 1'' legspan.

Here are a few of mine. These were taken with a Sony DCS-F717
Is that a B. smithi in the lower right pic? Heh, it looks like a poodle! :)

I just uploaded the images again so they would be a little larger. I think they got re-ordered when I edited the post. However, yes that is a shot of a B. smithi.

The H. lividum was not very happy the day I took that shot. I transferred her to a new setup with a deeper substrate. That is why she was sitting in the corner pouting.
