SPIDERS PUT ON A HIGH-WIRE SHOW

Two Garden Orb-weavers put on a high-wire courtship display adjacent to our rainforest balcony here at Minibeast Wildlife. A large male appeared at the edge of the web and tried to lure the female out of her web in order to mate. He needed to be careful, as despite his large size, she was much bigger. The photos below show the two about to meet for the first time. Find our more about Garden Orb-weavers and other minibeasts on our Resources page.
