1) Tail-end of a hawkmoth caterpillar (Sphingidae):

2) Crab spider:

3) Crab orbweaver (Gasteracantha cf. versicolor):
cf. in open nomenclature refers to "confer with". It is a starting point for further enquiry, which is to say that the current species bears a resemblance (with respect to genetic/or morphologically distinct traits) to a known species, and may represent either a new species within the genus, or else a distinct morphological type within a polymorphic species .

Very nice, I think that recently your shots seem to be a little more exposed than your usual.

I am not sure when this started but if you go back a while there seems to be a trend in adding a more light. Very nice.

Best
