Excellent! With an artful eye. Especially for the last one. The little orb weaver has the look of a bolas spider, although those are orb weavers, technically. But they build a very unique kind of insect snare with their web.

Took me some time to spot that no.4 was a spider, and not something else! Great stuff as always, Hayath.

Thanks much, Mark, Sumguy01 and DrHook!

The bolas is something I've tracked, seen the egg case but yet to find the spider
