Great portraits of these little beasties! How do you get them to pose? The spiders around here are very shy!

It depends... It helps to be obsessed and constantly looking for them, but less time for that lately, so I think there will be less shots from me in 2013.

If I were on top of my game and got extremely lucky, my best shot of a spider might look as good as No. 9. All your other shots seem to show a much sharper focus and a deeper DOF. Are they stacked, or are these single shots? Anything you can describe to explain the difference between 9 and the others?

Just an amazing set.

Thanks for the comment. #3, 4, and 7 are stacks. The others are single images. You can get decent DOF if the spider is big enough and/or you don't up the magnification as much. Most people tend to like full-body shots of jumpers (I think) and if you have a decent-sized spider you only have to go to 2X-2.5X. #9 was a single high-mag shot taken at 5X mag, so the DOF is necessarily very small. I like #9 though and don't necessarily equate a lot of DOF with being "good". Though high-mag stacked images are great, I like the selective DOF you can achieve with single shots. There is a similar effect with this image, where only a small part is in focus, but you can see the rest of the spider, though it is out of focus:

Or you can go the other way, and try to get a stack of multiple images, though this is one of the very few times I've managed it:

You can click through the links to my Flickr pages for more details. Anyway, good luck with the spiders. Getting obsessed helps a lot.
