While trekking through the Corcovado National Park, this giant Golden Orb Spider was spinning its silk web, known to be so strong that if woven into a vest it would be bullet proof. This life size picture of the giant orb spider brings to life its world to ours.

Location: Corcovado National Park, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
