This is a Nephila Spider, one of the biggest web spiders on earth. This one I captured in Southern Brazil in a hill bush next to the sea. This spider can be found in tropical countries in different sub-species. There are researches about the use of its strong web material to make surgery strings due its strenght and antiinflamatory properties...fantastic.

Hi Jose,
I'm a little afraid of spiders - special of those big ones. Wow, what a spider, wonderful spots. I'd loved to see it with something other so we could imagine how big it is.
But the blue background is also pretty, thanks

Olá Jose
Gostei da foto mas principalmente do fundo azul e do angulo que vc tirou a foto, é um belo inseto, só acredito que vc talvez tenha "puxado" um pouco a nitidez...ou talvez tenha sido do recorte, mas esta ótima, parabens

Hi Jose,
Nice capture on this spider. Good POV and composition. This is a difficult shot and you handled well. TFS
