Completely freaky. Beautiful, but scary!
I hate spiders, but must admit - this is a beautiful shot! Thanks for visiting and happy WW!
Do you know what kind of spider that is?? I have not seen that one before... :0
This is called a Golden Silk Orb Weaver (genus Nephila). The pic was taken in Costa Rica at La Selva Biological Station. The body is about 3" long. This is the female. The male is exceptionally tiny compared to the female. Similar species can be found in the southeastern US and Texas where they are known as Banana Spiders.
this is an interesting picture.you focus the object and let the leaves as its blurry background very beautiful and nicely done!HAPPY WW!Check out mine too!Facial ExpressionsWorn Out
Happy Wordless Wednesday Patrick - I would not be wordless if I walked thru that web unsuspectingly. Great photo.
If today is Wordless Wednesday, then why are you posting comments, Pat?
Eeeeek! Gross! Beautiful shot, but I'd never be able to stand still long enough to get it.
Interesting fact about banana spiders, if your hubby decides to be the gentleman and use a long stick to gently move the spider from the garden path it is blocking with its web, the spider WILL run tight up the stick incredibly fast causing hubby to scream like a girl and do a really amusing dance down the path while trying to remove the banana spider from his coat sleeve.
Happy Wordless Wednesday and love this stunning spider shot! Makes me feel like spring is getting closer!
AWESOME!Spiders are not my favourites but this picture is amazing!
Love the shot. I have been trying to take photos of spiders but haven't had anything as clear as that, nor as colorful as that specie. Lovely.
There was a time when spiders really creeped me out - I wouldn't even touch the page of a book that had a picture of one. I credit my blog buddies for changing that into appreciation, and photos such as this one I can now see as beautiful instead of scary.
Great picture. The orb weavers in the Northwest look quite different.
