Cool! It is Nephila clavipes, the gold silk orbweaver.
What a lovely name 🙂 Better than what we call them – banana spiders – you know how common names are…
Is this a jumping spider? there used to be black spiders in Texas and they jumped 3 to 4 feet in the air. Maybe Nephila C. stays in its gold silk orb …
I don’t think these ones jump, thank goodness, because they get quite large. Actually they make good subjects, staying still for pictures.
You even got the web…
🙂 I liked that about the picture
Fantastic captures! 😀
May be my next tattoo!
You should see them in color!!
