Giant Wood Spider or Golden Silk Orb-Weaver - Nephila Pilipes Jalorensis

Mother Nature never ceases to amaze us with Her creations!
As we walked silently inside a coffee estate at Coorg, we saw several insects, birds, and small animals, and were able to absorb the positive energy from the surroundings.
When we saw the Giant Wood Spider, we had to stop, and awe the spider and its impressive web. The web was a large one, and delicately woven. The spider itself was big, bold, and colorful. The spider had covered the catch with its saliva, resembling a cocoon in the making.  Read more about the web spinning (by this spider) at Wikipedia.
This spider's venom may not be lethal to humans, but may cause irritation/allergic reactions. Please ensure that you stay safe, don't touch the insect or disturb it from its natural habitat.
