Spiny backed Orb weaver spider

travelwithapril, spider web, ghana

This is by far the most intricate spun web I have ever witnessed to date, the custodian of this masterpiece is called the Spiny backed Orb weaver spider.

My curiosity had me researching it and found that besides its weaving skills its harmless or not dangerous to humans but rather a beneficial animal. They help to control overpopulation of small pests that are present in crops and suburban areas insects. They should not be killed its not a witch..lol
This master weaver was not found anywhere ordinary but tucked in a tree right in front of Bonwire!!  Bonwire is a town in the Ashanti region of Ghana famous for Kente weaving.
