This large spider was spotted in the Deer Cave, in the Mulu Region of Sarawak, Borneo.
This spider could only be spotted by looking for the reflection of torch light from its eyes. Even on close inspection it could only just be discerned against the bark of the tree. (Taman Negara National Park)
Another well-camouflaged spider in the Taman Negara National Park.
This is a fascinating spider, which I believe is called the Long-Horned Orb Weaver. Notice the long "horns" on its tail. (Mulu Region of Borneo)
This one had its dinner close at hand. (Taman Negara National Park)
The stripes on this spider were not exactly camouflage. More likely just off-putting! (Taman Negara National Park)
I've no idea about this one. (Taman Negara National Park)
Nice and hairy - otherwise any suggestions as to identification welcome! (Taman Negara National Park)
This is a type of wolf spider, I think! (Taman Negara National Park)
