Spider weaves wondrous web captured by photographer

FRASER  Coast Chronicle photographer Alistair Brightman captured this shot of a golden silk orb-weaver spider which seemed untroubled by the mist the early morning dew left on its web in Hervey Bay on Thursday morning.

The spiders are widespread in the warmer regions of the world, including Australia, Africa and Asia.
