Backlit shot of this beautiful spider. First look, these spider really look like dead leaves stuck on a web. Taken at night in Singapore forest.

Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arachnur…
Arachnura is a genus of orb-weaving spiders of Australasia, with one species found in Africa and Madagascar. These spiders mimic litter, like twigs or dead leaves, by a brownish color and appendages. They stay at the middle of their web day and night. Among the common names are Tailed spider, Scorpion-tailed spider and Scorpion spider. They do curl up their tail when disturbed, but this tail is completely harmless, as they are not closely related to order scorpiones. Bites are rare, and result in minor symptoms such as local pain and swelling.

Females are between 1 and 3 cm long, males reach only 2 mm and are tailless.

It takes plenty of guts to hunt an ant! Taken at night in Singapore.

Interesting Huntsman with long long legs!

Sparassidae (formerly Heteropodidae) are a family of spiders known as huntsman spiders because of their speed and mode of hunting. They also are called giant crab spiders, because of their size and appearance. Larger species sometimes are referred to as wood spiders, because of their preference for woody places (forest, mine shafts, woodpiles, wooden shacks). In southern Africa the genus Palystes are known as rain spiders or lizard-eating spiders. Commonly they also are confused with baboon spiders, which are practically unrelated, being in a different infraorder, the Mygalomorphae.

Sparassidae occur in practically all warm temperate to tropical regions of the world, including much of Australasia, Africa, Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Americas.

Shot at about 2.5x with a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens.

This critter was almost constantly cleaning itself when it wasn't trying to avoid me and the lens ;)

This species was a really tricky to photograph -didn't like me getting close, and exposing for black against white is a pain...

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F14, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens + a diffused MT-24EX.

I placed a small drop of honey on the flower this fly was feeding on and waited for it to start eating.

Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F11, 1/300, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ 4x) + a diffused MT-24EX (-1/3 FEC). Shot at 1/300 because my finger accidentally hit the dial for the shutter -doh! :)
