Wow!!
Are these all of the same spider through its development? I've never seen anything like it!

 
All but the last...
image were of the same spider. The spider stayed under the same leaf up until recently when I checked and it wasn't there. I looked around and found the one in the last image about one meter away on another small tree with prey.

It must have been a good year for these spiders, because I found quite a number of these young ones around the same area.

 
That's great!
I'm glad I found these. =)

Another
Lovely shot.

 
Thank You!
