Size: BL = 6 mm

Would you believe under a table lamp in a clear baking dish set on a blue wash cloth, at the edge of the paper I put in the bottom of the dish? :) I was thinking last night that I need to use a white wash cloth under the pan. Almost every spider I put in this setup runs to the edge where the blue cloth shows up in the background of the picture.
