    This guy is so awesome! Definitely one of the coolest spiders I’ve ever seen. Love the comp of this shot, shows off his patterns and shape and his claw-like front legs well:)

  • Thanksie, would love to get some closer shots of him – he was just so small to begin with it was difficult enough as it is! Probably about 7mm long.
