~ Dangerous & Beautiful ~
I don't know its ID, though I think it is dangerous, as I know every insect and reptile having bright red or yellow colour is dangerous...
Got it in the route of Triyuginarayan, where (it is said that) lord Shiva wedded Parvati...
I think this giant spider is beautiful... Isn't it?
Yes or not...
~ Enjoy It ~

a curious little creature, it looks elegant and strong and you captured it with great sharpness. I like very much how you framed this portrait in action, the spider's legs spreading from the centre of the frame. The web is very well defined in its strength and subtlety and the background is comprehensible and delightful. You've illuminated very aptly and the colours are lovely. I'm not sure about it's being dangerous because it's brightly coloured and lovely. In Leros, there's a dangerous big spider which is discreetly coloured and ugly:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

hi subhendu. for me it is dangerous & dangerous, but in a sense, yes, all the creatures are beautiful :)
having seen your focal length was only 9 mm.s, i had the shivers. weren't you afraid that it could jump on your camera? anyway, superb focus and deep bokeh.

For an arachnophobic person like me, all spiders are dangerous and are there to kill human beings!! So I am not at all enjoying the close up view of this devil. Birds are much better!!
As for the photo...Superb focus on the subject and the intricate details of the web. Your capture is so lively I fear it will jump out of the frame. Excellent shot and thanks for sharing.

Elle est de toute beauté cette araignée. J'aime beaucoup comment tu as réussi à faire ressortir les couleurs. Elle semble bien protégée par sa très belle toile et j'aime beaucoup l'arrière plan.

J'aime beaucoup la grande netteté de cette image où on peut voir les détails de l'animal et de sa toile. Arrière plan flou bien réussi. Bien fait.

I would certainly treat this as highly dangerous but I would still be tempted to watch it from a safe distance. It's a beautiful and fascinating creature and you have captured it very elegantly hanging in its net, perfectly sharp, with the blurred forest/park in the background.
In Sweden there are only three kinds of snakes, two of them harmless and one slightly dangerous. But because one of the harmless kinds is also very rare and threatened all snakes are protected by law, just to stop people from killing the endangered kind by mistake.

Belle par ces couleurs mais effrayante par sa grandeur, en plus si elle est dangereuse, netteté excellente, très belle présentation,

To tell you the true? Only watched one time at the colorful insect, they impresed me, looking now at the web, quite in contrast with the blured background
Good frame and from far...yes, its beautiful
