Golden Silk Orb Weaver

I was getting ready to pack my 500mm camera/lens setup back to the car from a morning at Brazos Bend State Park when I looked up and spied this huge 3" spider attached to an intricate web. I set the tripod back down and captured a photo of this golden silk orb weaver at Brazos Bend State Park in Texas.
