Every one of these is quite pleasing. The spiders are particularly aesthetic.
The trouble with quick and dirty is that the dirty remains after the quick is gone.

I get so jealous when I see insects from other parts of the world .. so colorful and exotic compared to the ones I have here... :D

And the winner is.. the red head spider...I just love it...
