Portrait of a Golden ‘Orp’ (golden orb weaver)

Not difficult to guess why people name this spider Golden Orp (‘orp’ as spelled in local spider book!!! globally spelled as ‘orb‘). Just scroll past the first B&W picture. The third is a photoshopped combination of both.

    Are you sure it’s not a ‘golden orb(web)’?

      Here it is spelled as ‘orp’ (South African spider book).
      Will have a look outside (Wikipedia) and eventually adjust.
      Thanks for the remark!
