Golden Orb Weaver Spider

Visitors to Khao Yai National Park are in the heart of deep jungle and are exposed to all kinds of wildlife. We were headed down a trail behind our cabin and we were so focused on the leaches on the ground that we didn't notice the web until we walked into it. The web filaments are so sturdy that we didn't even damage the web. At the time the spider wasn't visible, so we hurried under it and continued on our way. On the way back up the trail, the spider was out. I got as close as I dared. It turns out while being fairly large, they aren't at all aggressive, and some Thai's eat them.
