[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Argiope araneomorfas is a genus of spiders Araneidae family which includes large and spectacular spiders that have a great sexual dimorphism, being females (approximately 2.5 cm) around 3 times higher than males (about 8 mm). These species have a remarkably colorful abdomen and are distributed worldwide; in countries with temperate climates have one or more species with similar appearance.
In the particular case of the spider I photographed; belly has symmetrical spots pale greenish yellow.

We were in Iguaço, Brazil a few years ago and we saw a rather LARGE spider net with a bird entangled into that mess.
Had no camera with me on that day.
OH! SOUTH AMERICA!!! How I long to go back.
This is, indeed, a lovely presentation.
Loved your notes.
Mario with regards from Canada.

Hi Henan.
It is a very pictorial picture of the spider and its web with amazing light spot behind the insect and nicely blurred impressive BG. I like composition of the image and location of the spider in the frame as well as wonderful combination of sharpness and blurriness. TFS and best regards.

Hello Hernan,
What a beautiful spider you have posted, it makes me curious as to what the other side looks like. I see it constructs a rather unique looking web with no particular set pattern. The interesting BG colors go great with the colors of the spider. Well done!!
