Spider having Breakfast

Golden Orb Web Spider Big SpiderGolden Orb Web Spider- Giant Wood Spider ( Nephila sp.) – female

Golden Orb Web SpiderAfter reading from the NET, I now realized that the tiny spider below is actually male spider of.
In this case the male size is about one-tenth of the female.


  1. I was at about 3.5meters (minimum focusing distance of my 400mm telephoto lenses) from the web.The female spider is about 5cm long and the male is about 5mm.So much difference in size. It was reported that the female spider didnot even notice that he has crept up and inseminated her!
