    Nice collection you got there!
    Interesting to see one in the garden-imagine finding one in your lawn!

    You got that right. Nice pics, nice spiders. There's something about A. laeta that appeals to me. Probably the rich browns and the slightly scruffy look of the first male.

    I use a FujiFilm FinePix E510 (5.2 MP) camera. It does pretty well for a camera of it's price range (I paid 275$ CDN, so about 130 B.P.), I'm still trying new things to try to improve my picture quality with this camera (It's a bit stubborn about the amount of light you need)

    They are also (IME) one of the hardiest Avicularia species, and among the better eaters within the genus I've kept.

    Here's some more species:
    Pamphobeteus sp "Bolivia"
    Pre-molt

    Metriopelma zebratum:





    M. familaire:

    I think I'll keep an eye out, then.

    Great photos of the other spiders. The zebratum looks like it would glow in the dark...
