Underside of the Golden Orb Spider

Underside of the Golden Orb Spider

These beautiful large Golden Orb spiders always seem to place their webs across the tracks I’m going to walk along. The webs are made of spun gold (so it seems) and in the early morning light their legs look transparent gold too. I don’t like spiders but at least these are large enough to see before becoming entangled in the web which is really, really sticky. In Australia we have a number of highly venomous spiders (that can kill you if you don’t get anti-venom quickly enough) but the Golden Orb is not one of these.
