Golden Silk Orb Weaver, Nephila sp.

I have moved to

There are over 150 species of golden silk orb-weavers world wide. I found one that has a unique visual feature on the ventral view.

If you look carefully, there appear a human-like face and a rib-cage.

This spider was found among tall grass and bushes in the rain forest, Pahang, Malaysia, at 1000 m above sea level.
