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.
Now it's the 2nd one. Your Ts are beautiful!

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.
Hey Andy, that is a decent shot with respect to the framing, but the lighting is much too harsh. The picture is way over exposed. Did you manually set the shot or let the camera do the work? I am not trying to be picking, just trying to help. Keep on shooting.

My "submission" isnt really the greatest but I really wanted to get this thread going. It was a manual shot if I can remember correctly but the flash tends to kill things even when turned down - and it does appear over-exposed. I've been pretty busy lately(just getting back to school) - but I'll take another shot sometime sooner than later and replace that picture.

I've been getting more used to my PowershotA85 and now that I have a little more time on my hands I'll be sure to take advantage of the awesome manual settings on the camera.

Keep on with the pics everybody! & Thanks for the pictures for those of you who have submitted. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I should add that the photos have not been blown up at all :) That's the exact size they came out of the camera.

Ruby was not amused by tonight's attention but she took it in stride. This shot was taken at f16 handheld...



Here's a crop at 100%...

Ever wondered what a spider labium looks like (I said labium)?? Ever wondered what on earth a cuspule is (say as in the theraphosid Lasiodorides polycuspulatus)??

Here they are ;) :
