This is a golden orb spider. They make the largest, strongest webs of all spiders. This one has chosen to do so outside our front door. The female is the big one, the male the very small one. If she spots him, she'll eat him. Who'd be a male orb spider, eh?

All images on this website have been shot using either a Canon S40 compact digital camera, or a Canon 20D DLSR. I'm something of a Canon fan. :) Most images have been post processed with Adobe Photoshop and the CurveMeister plugin. I thoroughly recommend CurveMeister, BTW. It's a great piece of software.
