Golden Orb

I ran into this Golden Orb spider in the door of our camel boma last week.  Fortunately i ran into a small strand first and was able to stop before putting my face  right through her beautiful web. Golden Orb spiders in New Guinea have such strong webs that they are woven and used locals for catching fish.
