Hello friends in TE,

This spider was captured close to my fence. It looks like the garden spider but the legs are not paired together like I used to see.

Thanks for viewing!

Anna suggested this might be an Orb Spider.
Thanks Anna!

Ahmet suggested that this is Golden Orb Spider (Nephila sp) which looks pretty accurate to me.
Thanks Ahmet!

Hallo Jusni
If I am not mistaken this is an Orb Spider. This is the 2nd one I see on the gallery today. Its body markings and vivid colours are really beautiful and stands out well. I like the centralised, almost full framed composition. The spiderweb is just as beautiful and I like the almost golden glow one can see looking at it. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello dear friend Jusni! Remarkably colorful spider which can be an Orb Spider as Anna suggested. Scary stuff isn't it? In our region some of those spiders are really big, and I mean Big, but their webs are rather chaotic like a giant ball if I can call it that way. They are capable to capture in those webs, pray as big as small birds! Wow! Thanks for sharing my friend and enjoy your day!

Hello Jusni,
An impressive large spider well captured against the natural OOF green BG. Its black red and yellow colours signify warning in nature, which presumably warns birds not to try to take it.
Thanks and kind regards,

salam akhi Jusni
what a beautiful orb spider, with colorful abdomen. great macro shot from ventral aspects. great focus and coloration on it and BG. nicely composed.
I am not specialist on these animals, but I searched from some source. it looks Nephila sp. (e.g. N. pilipes or similar species). Inshallah this note will be useful for you.

Hi Jusni,the spider is a little overexposed but..what a fantastic specie,what a design and colors,a beautiful specie very strange and interesting.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano.

All Arachnida frighten me, due to an experience as a child. Your is certainly well decorated by nature. The collude are stunning and pattern as well. At least it is not in attack position.

Wonderful macro capture of this strange spider which i did not see a similar one in Turkey MF Jusni.
TFS and have a nice day!

Salam Jusni,
excellent array of colours exist on this spider's body. Very well seen in a nice flash of light. The effect of its web is quite interesting - its a whirling feeling I got when looking at it.
A nice central composition, a special for this webber.


Hallo Jusni,
a spectacular picture of this spider, good sharpness and vivid colours, excellent POV and composition
Best regards

Hello Jusni,
Fantastic capture with superb details and excellent colours.
Very interesting spider with long legs and vivid colours.
Perfect exposure and light.

A fine capture of a spider on its web Jusni, both of which are sharp enough yo see clearly over the OOF greeneries. Good job my friend.

Hi Jusni

A lovely top-down image of this Golden orb-web spider. Btw, these spiders got their name
from the webs of strong, thick, golden silk which the female spins (which can be seen on
your image). The female is much larger than the male, with her body mass being as much
as a thousand times more than that of the male. You made good use of the fill-in flash and
the colours are very natural.

Well done and TFS.
Take care and have a great weekend.

During this time of year the commercialised words "Peace & Goodwill" always gets blown
out or proclaimed in a superfluous plethora of advertisements, catalogues and billboards
by the mass media, radio and TV. Wherever one looks or listens you get blasted with
this notion, but spare a moment in your thoughts and prayers to the ill-fated realities of
those less fortunate. Those that are living in war torn countries, those whose lives were
disrupted by natural catastrophes, those that do not have enough food on the table,
those who are removed from friends and family, those who do not have the privilege of
love and laughter in their lives.

FAITH makes all things possible
LOVE makes all things BEAUTIFUL,
It is my whish that you will have all three of these in abundance for this Christmas.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a wonderful New Year!

Hello Jusni!
Excellent work. Superb exposure and capture. Perfect contrast and ideal sharpness.
Very good work.
Well done!
