Golden Silk Orb-Weaver

I photographed this Golden Silk Orb-Weaver spider at J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, in Sanibel, Florida. I never saw a colorful spider like this one before. I was going to a lookout platform along the Wildlife Drive and along the boardwalk, which is very dark because of all the Mango trees covering the walk, I noticed this web. I went back to the car and switched to a shorter lens. But because of how dark it was under all the trees, I shot bursts hoping one would be sharp because of the slow shutter speed I had to use.

    • Yes! It was very colorful! I was surprised to see it. The spider only stayed long enough to get a couple of images before it scurried off!
