Spiders

Few of my photographs of spiders that I found in Botanical Garden, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The Golden Orb Web Spider is not the largest spider, but makes the largest and strongest web. It gets its name from the golden colour of its silk.

The golden silk orb-weavers (genus Nephila) are a genus of araneomorph spiders noted for the impressive webs they weave. Nephila consists of numerous individual species found around the world. They are also commonly called golden orb-weavers, giant wood spiders, or banana spiders. The genus name Nephila is derived from Ancient Greek, meaning “fond of spinning”.
