Thanks, Mira.
I think I have maybe figured it out about the color of spider #2.
As you know, a Blue Bird's feathers are not blue. They are clear until light hits them, and then due to the wave length of the light, we see blue.
I think that the camera flash on the almost clear spider body did the same thing, or something very similar.

Feel free to offer other ideas, but that is the best guess I have.
