Garden Spider

Araneus diadematus – This was a relatively small Garden Spider which was hanging around on a fence panel at the bottom of the garden. I am always taken by the intricacy of their webs, but it looks like this one has had one or two problems. Double-click image for a closer look.

  1. I often find the underside, ventral as Indira mentioned, as if not more interesting than the top. Especially when you catch one producing silk from its spinneret. This one seems to have become tangled in its own thread.
