Golden silk orb-weaver

The golden silk orb-weaver is one of the largest spiders in our garden. The large female weaves a strong, yellowish web and catches anything that finds itself entangled. The much smaller male doesn’t need a lot of food, but I’m sure he shares every now and then.

I am an anthropologist of religion and photographer, currently living in Pretoria, South Africa. I wrote my PhD-thesis on narratives about Satanism in Zambia. Currently I am preparing a new research project that uses photography as an ethnographic method. In my free time, I love hiking, safaris and enjoying nature through photography.
