Darn! Didn't get a single good photo of this spider. Put my head into its web while looking for a frog. It was about 2.5 cm across with its legs.

After it held still for a minute or so while I tried in vain to point my flashlight at it while taking a photo with my iPhone, it resumed building its web and moved so fast I didn't have a chance of a good photo. So I tapped on its web again and it froze again while I tried (still unsuccessfully) to take another photos while being eaten alive by mosquitos. I never found the frog back, either!

Took many tries to get a photo distinguishable as a bat and not a blurry blob. Probably a big brown but not sure.
