I documented some prey-capture behavior of giant orb-weaving spiders native to Tawain. It is part of research conducted by Dr. Anne Danielson-Francois of the University-Michigan Dearborn, I mentioned this some posts back about a month or two ago. Here's a rough edit of the footage, set to the music of Philip Glass.
I also give the link to a piece done by the Detroit Free Press on Dr. Francois' research, it's a nice video-summary of her research of the spiders.
