Golden Orb Weaver (video)

I took a video of this monstrous spider with an iPhone 5 at the Lion’s Nature Education Centre, Sai Kung, Hong Kong when visiting there to take photos of the dragonflies.  There were many of these huge spiders and most, like this one, were feasting on their prey.  To give a sense of scale, the body and head is about the length of my small finger – simply huge.  The iPhone is pretty good at video – the slightly unnerving thing is how close you have to be to get a video like this!
