Molted spider

This used to have an entire THING in it!

Bwuh! On first approach I thought I was working with a very calm and cooperative spider, but it turns out there was no spider at all! Rather, just a spider shell that a very slightly smaller spider had recently escaped out of.  All that remained was a hollow hairy shell, so thin you can pretty much see through it.

Somewhere out there a spider is enjoying its fresh new bod.

I took this with my 90mm lens, shooting at 1/200 and f29 with an ISO of 100. My trusty strobe and Magbounce combo was positioned over the subject.
