    awesome thread, becoming my fave. I used to keep spiders as pets, got hundreds of babies from a few specimens. had to quit in the end because feeding them was such a horror - the buzzing of those poor flies I can never forgive myself when I think about it.

    but I'm really enjoying the thread, you have some very cool spiders over there.

    Thanks Maxima, spiders are a fascinating subject.


    This spider has set up shop on one of my over-summering outdooor Neps.

    I had posted a pic of this spider earlier in this thread.



    I hadn't seen her in a while so i suspected a bird may have eaten her.

    Yesterday i spotted her again and today i took some pics.





    And she has dozens of baby spiderlings!!!



    These are about the size of a grain of salt.

    I've been curious as to why this spider has these particular markings on her back and now i think i know the reason...for camouflage purposes.



    She hides a good portion of the day behind a netting of dead, dried leaf remants and with her white body on the house's white flashing she becomes quite inconspicuous indeed.



    She is very docile and allows me to get the camera lens right up into her face...in fact, i've never seen her move.

    She's definitely not starving.

    While jumpers are probably my favorites, I've been watching several of the 'web-hangers' outside the house doing their thing. Definitely get some sadistic pleasure watching them empty the juices out of stinkbug army minions.

    Haha, i have to agree she does appear to be very well fed.

    We have at least a couple species of jumping spiders here, but i haven't come across any of them this summer.
