Size Isn't Everything



This is the female Golden Orb Weaver spider, probably one of the most commonly seen spiders in Brisbane. They hang out in strong webs where they catch their flies or other flying insects and then wrap them up in a nice bundle for later like a packed lunch (see left of picture). That teeny spider next to her not much bigger than her lunch is the male.
