    When checking my plants, I came across a nice little spider resting on my Heliamphora's lable. During the photo shoot, he moved to a new and more colorful location.

    Thats an interesting little guy. Did he every fall into or get fed to any of the pitchers?

    I always thought it was very funny to watch them squirm as you carry them ever closer to the waiting jaws or what not...

    Very nice pictures!!! You must have a really good camera and a good eye for photography. I think spiders are cool and they seem to be fairly smart too.

    The spider is actually living with the heliamphora. It is too bit to get caught by the pitchers at this time. The widest pitcher has an opening that is just under an inch in diameter. The spider did not sit long enough for me to get a photo of it looking out of the pitcher.

    Nice coloration on your Heliamphora, Nick! It contrasts well with the pale spider.

    That's an awesome coloration on the lynx spider! It almost looks fake!
