Walter Piorkowski has some amazing--and surprisingly beautiful--photomicrographic images of spider spinnerets at Photomacrography.net here and here and here. Walt, if you happen to see this, please let us know what species you were looking at and anything else you would like us to know--I'm not having much luck trying to contact you. Thanks for this unusual look at the external features of the silk system.
