Giant Golden Orb Spider

Bravery or Stupidity?

6 May

Here’s a picture of me and a Giant Golden Orb spider.  That’s as close as I could get without getting my hair caught in the web.  I tried to get the shot so that you could see the size comparison with my face…which is pretty much equal.  This picture was taken pre-huntsman spider bite so there’s a bit of ignorant bliss going on in the photo.  Although the orb spiders can’t kill you, I’ve heard they do have a pretty good bite, like the huntsman.  And I  only need to feel that once.


But honestly, arachnophobia aside, aren’t they gorgeous?
