Subject: What’s that bug?

I shot these pictures in Angkor Wat, July 2012. I don’t even know if it’s an insect or a Nephila pilipes-like spider: it seems to have six legs but silk seemed to be emanating from its behind; it could also have been dragging something else’s silk, not sure. Do you have any idea?

You are correct that this is a Golden Silk Spider in the genus Nephila. It is missing a few legs.
