    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...

    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)

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