Joseph CHIEF REDEARTH male Nephila pilipes are tiny spiders measuring around 0.5-0.6 cm. These are bigger in size (2.5 -3.0 cm)

Richard Ong very near to this site I had found Giant orb weaver as well as golden silk orb weaver. The golden orb weaver and this spider was almost of the same size, though this one was slightly smaller comparitively.

Moreover in the web of this spider I also found this tiny spider. It might be around 0.8-1.0 cm in size and I am thinking this tiny spider to be the male because of the size difference.
