Nephila pilipes (人面蜘蛛)

As we described in our last blog. The Chinese name for the Nephila pilipes is "Human Face Spider". This weekend, we got a chance to photograph the spider from its back. The spider usually has its head pointed downward. I flipped the picture 180 degree, so you can see better the human face on its back.

That is awesome - and what an appropriate name for the spider.
