Golden Orb Weaver spider - male approaches a female from above, hoping to mate with her

EL-1937
Golden Orb Weaver spider - male approaches a female from above, hoping to mate with her.
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Nephila plumipes
His swollen black pedipalps contain a sperm bundle transferred from his reproductive organs; this is rapidly injected into the female's body before a hasty retreat. After mating the female often eats the male, therefore he is careful in his approach and departure. The spider is named for the golden colour of the web and egg-sac constructed by the female.
