[I really like the last one, I saw the silhouette/his outline through the leaf and thought it was really cool]

You've been showing some amazing stuff lately, I'm envious. The last one is wonderful, with shadows and sharp detail. Cute lil spiders!

I like the second shot. He really looks like a hunter on the prowl.
