While in Haiti I was amazed to see this lovely spider hanging out beside the path. I looke at your site and it seems that you do not have any from Haiti. Is this in fact a Golden silk spider? Or am I incorrect?

Golden Silk Spider

Hi Lorraine,
You are correct.  This is
Nephila clavipes, the Golden Silk Spider, and it is the only New World representative in the genus.
