Hi Guys,
It has been a bumper year down under for Golden Orb Weavers, I have never seen so many in any year before. This lady is enjoying a tasty cicada. In this pic you can clearly see the golden colour of the web that gives them the name. Taken February 10 2008, Boondal Wetlands, Queensland.
Keep up the great work.

Hi Trevor,
We can always count on you for a great photo. We believe your Golden Orb Weaver is Nephila edulis, though there are several other species in the genus found in Australia. This is a great addition to our Food Chain pages.
