A male Golden Orb Web Weaver spider hitches a ride on his much larger female partner. After mating, the female will more than likely eat the male. This spider's web is incredibly strong. Some of their massive webs can even catch small birds (which the spider will eat through combustive venom injections). This shot was taken in the complete wilds of Namibia, southwestern Africa.
