Large Garden Orb Weaver spinning prey

LARGE GARDEN ORB WEAVER SPINNING IT'S PREY IN WEB

We came across this large Garden Orb Weaver Spider (Eriophora transmarina)  last night at our patch, and watched it spectacularly catch an insect in it's web, then proceed to spin the silk to wrap it up.  They are such an amazing spider and this one was very healthy looking, in a massive web.
