The Giant wood spider known as The Nephila Maculata is found in many contries including Japan, India & Australia. This spider is a big spider found in the forests. The legs of this spider are very long. The front legs are about twice as long as the spider. The abdomen area is black with yellow bands which look quite attractive.
This spider creates one of the strongest web and is spread in square meter area.
I see your flash went off...that should have dramatically increased your DOF. Is this a new camera or one that you have been using?
Well seen and Identified...just a tad blurry and not sure why with flash going off....mechanical problem?
This indeed a huge spider with remarkable paws. The black and yellow body and segmented paws, is really striking. It looks as if its body was plaited and curled into the beautiful shape it is now. I like the full framed composition; it makes the striking details well noticeable. Thanks for sharing. Best regards from a very cold South Africa.
