I think this is the tree trunk spider or two tailed spider of which there are apparantley one hundred and fifty species.Walking through through the rubber platations in Thailand where I was staying, I noticed numerous large spiders especially at the base of the trees.

Hi Erwin,
wow...this is a big spider hiding on the tree surface. You have captured it so lively and naturally. Very sharp and very clear of its habitat.
nice colours of the tree bark too.

Very fine image of this spider species, good details and colors. tfs.

Hallo Erwin
It really seems as if you had a great journey with lots of photographic opportunities while visiting your in-laws in Thailand. It must have been great walking through these rubber plantations noticing all these spiders you make mention of in your note. The fine hair on the body and paws as well as the beautiful markings is well seen. Very interesting to see the rubber “tears” on the plant’s stem behind the spider. Thanks for sharing this series of photos from Thailand. Best regards.
