    beautiful creatures and great pics!
    wish i'd been able to justify getting one of those new Chaetopelma...very cool spiders!
    loved the pic of the crab spider eating and the Thomisid...and the widow is lovely!

    I dont know the species name- but I am pretty sure the crab spider is feeding on a wasp that is a honeybee mimic- very cool!
