Nothing special about this shot, but I've never seen a spider that looked like this before.

Spiny Orb Weaver. Next time you see one, look for the tiny little males in the same web.

A rare one for me. It's either an Apache or a Cardinal, I'm leaning toward Apache. They're usually very shy, this one stood still for a little bit.

A couple photos of a Wandering Spider in Monteverde, Costa Rica. It was super humid and fairly rainy which caused my 7D to shut down 7 shots later. Fortunately it was back working after a couple days of drying out it was back working.

Both are great, but WOW, that first one. I've not seen anything like it.

Spitting Spider (Scytodes thoracica)
[It spits a venomous sticky silken substance over its prey. This particular spitting spider features the presence of silk glands in its cephalothorax. Besides the silk glands in its abdomen, the spider also has silk glands connected with its venom glands. In this way the spider has the ability to make venomous silk.]

Jumping Spider (Salticus scenicus)
[Does what it says on the tin, often onto the end of your lens ;-)a]

Going through some older photos and found this Thorn-bellied Orb Weaver from a couple of years ago.

It looks like "SPIDER!" is about to happen there very soon.
Nice shot.
