{D Not much more left to be flicked is there? Just dry kicks 'til the next molt perhaps...

Mine still do superficial kicks, but prefer to hiss when disturbed!

Very nice, both spider and pics...

If I had one little tiny crticism, it would be a friendly reminder to pop the cam in macro mode when doing the close ups, or super macro if the camera has it, and you feel brave enough to take pics 3 cm away from the spider :)

lol, those are in Macro...I just had a hard time keeping him still! lol. Oh, and keeping myself still! I kept thinking he would run off while I was checking out the pics! hehe.

Oops :p Yeah - i have that problem...

Always tricky to get a tripod above a spider, and leaning over it at the right angle... we'll have to ask Prizz how he does it...

macro pics are nice, but some spiders make it very dificult to do. not all of them stay stoped waiting for the picture hehehe
i try to take it with some nice focus, usually 3 cm away from the scene.. just like cerbera told :)
my best poser is a aphonopelma caniceps, it stays a long time stoped.. even in my hands!
