Yikes! The stuff of nightmares.

Poor bird ... but nature's 'red in tooth and claw'.

I never liked spiders, but I really don't want to walk into this one. What a freaky creature

it's contrived. look at the "web", it's not web strands, it's fishing line.
look at where the "web" are hanging from... and where it ends?
it ends on points to hang the bird.

a spider weaves a web that is not like a fishing line. i am a skeptic before i believe anything . but if you look carefully, the lines connect to hang the bird .
a web does not spin this predictable way.

Well, I do not know.
Last summer I walked on a walking track to Bondi Beach (Sydney). During the walk, I have seen whole trees infested by orb weavers - literally wrapped up. The nets (or rather whole 3D structures built from the nets, by hundreds of spiders) have been 10m+ long, spanning the distance between trees. There were hundreds of spiders, not as big as this one - but big enough (and remember, in Quensland everything grows bigger). Unfortunately - I only had point-and-shoot camera, but no picture could describe the size of the spiders and their sheer number - as one needed a reference objects, and I could only shoot against the sky. It only could be appreciated by being there - and it was not nice.

And, a 6" huntsman sneaking inside the house and sitting on the wall is something I mostly stopped paying attention to.
