Ogre-faced Spider/Net Casting Spider favorited by Jae Tanjung Bungah, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia an hour ago

Have been seeing this Ogre-faced Spider often at my regular place since they tend to stay at one place unless disturbed. Pics #1, #2, #3 and #4 are of the same individual, large size for Spiders, around 1.5 cm from head to tail, and legs are very long. Pics #1, #2 and #3 were taken on the same day at early part of evening, when the Spider starts to come out, before constructing its web nettings. Pic #4 is of the same Spider on another day, with its web nettings ready to catch prey. Pic #5 is of a different Spider during day time, when it is resting/hiding and camouflaging among dead leaves/twigs or small branches.
