I thought it would have had to have been a bloody large spider. The shot was taken in India (Rajasthan) early last month.
Well, I like spiders because they keep the bug count down in my house, but I suspect I'd not want to meet up with that particular spider. On the other hand, that's a fascinating thought. Ever see the movie "Arachnophobia?" If that's actually a web, it probably was built by the culprit in that movie.
