I had forgotten about finding this spider in the process of applying the spiral strand to its orb web. Took advantage of an unexpected photo-op by taking a score or so images.

Bird hunting Tarantula larger than my hand. On show at the recent Reptile Expo at Ceasar's Palace, and its owner kindly moved it with a pair of forceps so I could get a decent pic.

I've always loved the intricacy and variation of the colouration patterns on the backs of spiders. Nicely captured!

This spider seems to have evolved to occupy a niche

This amazing creature is a female Australian Jewel Spider (Austracantha minax), also known as Six-spined Spider, Spiny Spider or Christmas Spider. Waratah heathland, Victoria. Didn't have my macro lenses on the walk unfortunately, but the DA 20-40 did a good job (with the KP). The "coloured lights" bokeh is another of the spiders.

This is probably basically the same spider,, although at least a different species if not genus as this one was on Kauai. There's a very similar spider in the southeastern USA.

One of those really big orb weavers. Lighting was harsh.

I put a cylinder, made of chicken net, in the garden to save the spiders nests from the cold winter and from the dog.
This spider is more comfortable making webs outside that cylinder
