The Nephila antipodiana spider

Whilst out on birding trips I have a habit of shooting other interesting subjects I come across. It has a leg span of up to 6 inches and body length up to 1.5 inches. This is one of the largest orb-weavers in the world.  

This large spider intrigued me for it's patience. It remained on the same spot of it's large web the whole day long! Perhaps that's something we could learn in dealing with our everyday live. Patience is a virtue we advise of our family and friends and yet it's one we struggle to imbue in ourselves. :-) 

Enjoy the photos.


Have a great day! Cheers!
