Nephila spiders are especially noted for the impressive webs they weave. This particular specimen is Nephila maculata. The species can be found from Japan down to Australia and west to India. They also show extreme sexual size dimorphism, in which the male is a fraction of the size of the female.
The background photo was taken by MyMy Butterfly of the Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist from the grounds of Colonial Park Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia.
This specimen is encased in a 9x9 frame.
