This is a spider moulting.

This is a spider moulting. Described as trying to remove a glove with the other hand behind your back!
LH picture is too dark to go further, but perhaps knowing where "Two Tree Island" is could limit the search. Freshly moulted spiders, like dragonflies, are much paler immediately afterwards, so go back to the island and take another shot!
