Thought I'd share this video of spider mites doing their worst: http://plantgasm.com/archives/4743
Didn't know anything about them until last year when they destroyed about a dozen of my plants. I just thought I was a terrible gardener Hilarious!

Very cool video! Pretty amazing photography! I generally only see these indoors on my back porch, but they are nasty little beasties for sure!
