Nice pics. That's certainly a weird spider. Looks more like a dragon fly with that long body.

They are weird looking, they create a kind of fishing net which they hold between four legs which they spread and wrap around their prey when they get close.
I'm hoping to find one with it's net in tact :)

Thanks Brian, hoping to get some better angles. He is currently sitting on the dining room table in small branch. If i get real lucky he will spin a net for me :-)

Wonderful captures, even more leggy than the average spider.
