AKA the Tent Spider. Fairly common to our area of Brisbane Australia (where this was shot), though not so common to easily get a shot of him top down as these guys always sit in their “tent-like” web upside-down.
Shot on the 20th of December 2009 with a Canon 7D and 70-300 is usm telephoto lens with 68mm of stacked extension tubes.
built-in flash: +1/3rd
