Spiders can be anything from night terrors to fuzzy, loveable, inquisitive critters. Some really nice details in this, though not my favorite spider as only jumping spiders have found grace in my eyes. :)

I wonder if this is a common resting position; he looks pretty comfortable! Interesting eye placement. Neat image.

This is excellent. This is a female bolas spider, and they are unusual: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qw3lkpa5lY

The spider image is great, kind of suspenseful as our attention is drawn to the big strange abdomen instead of the face. That's brilliant.
