Photography: A Spidey Beauty!

9개월 전

I took these pictures about 3 months ago and I cannot exactly say why I waited this long to share them. Maybe it's because I wanted to selfishly hold on to these beauties for as long as I possibly could before sharing them on the internet.

It's the picture of a star spider which happens to be an orb weaver. I was so fascinated by it and wanted to touch it but couldn't bring my self to do just that.

You can read up on the star spider from Wikipedia by clicking on the link below.

Here are the pictures.

South-Eastern Nigeria. Funny enough Wikipedia doesn't mention the star spider can be found in Nigeria or Africa for that matter. I think I may have to update that wiki.
