Orb-Weaver photographs

1 Comment | posted 4/07/10

A couple of months ago I discovered a huge Orb-Weaving spider web spanning a couple of our verandah posts. The ~4-5cm spider was sitting in the middle of it, binding some insects it had recently caught. It was evening and the sun was setting behind the web, so I tried to get a few good macro shots of it. I hope you like them! Those who are afraid of spiders may wish to reconsider scrolling down.
