Managed to find this spider in pitch darkness at Ta' Qali National Park, but only had the in-built flash on me. Used my mobile phone's 2 LEDs to light the subject a bit more, went in close with my 18-55mm and snapped a couple of shots. Lost some sharpness as flash wasn't illuminating the subject properly (was too close, barrel shadow). I hope this at least is sufficient!

A very informative pre-narrative, and an equally impressive macro photograph.
