The Spider

A friend of mine saw this monstrosity in Taiwan. The photo isn't very clear but you can't blame her considering it was the size of her face. Wanted to know what species it is so I know where they spawn and to stay away from those areas.

I believe this is called Nephila pilipes.

You can refer to Wikipedia for more information
