Golden Orb Weaver Spider

I had one of those ''light bulb'' moments yesterday while taking some photos of a Golden Orb Spider. I have often taken photos of these beauties while being out in the bush , and it always confused me to why they were called Golden Orb, as they didnt show any markings or colour of gold on them. But yesterday as I moved slightly to get a better angle of this spider in its web I saw it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its the web treads that is Golden.  Golden Orb in its beautiful golden web.Threads of gold
