Una araña negra que da un poco de respeto con ese aspecto y que bien se aprecia en todos los detalles.

I hate spiders! but I love the psychedelic backdrop!. It is mix of 60's and goth!
Very nice detail of the web and spider. Usually, the photos I've seen in TN show the other side of the spider. But, it's quite interesting to see the underside of it as well. I tried to get a photo of a garden spider for the first time last week. What seemed like it should be a simple task turned out to be very complicated. I haven't posted any shots because I didn't get any that I'm happy with. Maybe, sometime. In any case, your photo is terrific! TFS.

Hello Janice. Excellent shot at this spider. The web against the colorful background is so well lit exposing the details of the underside. Best regards. Jusni

Nice macro from your trip to Norfolk Island, Janice!
You show the ventral side of this Orb Spider with fine sharpness in the centre of its web and the image is well-composed against a pleasing OOF natural BG.
Interesting to note that the island is rich in spiders: this must mean that the insect life is also rich!

What a long legs has this Spider and yes certainly looks he/she big. I think he was not tame, but you were his next prey (-: By the beautiful colored background you see a good web.
