OK, it’s just one more spider, but (s)he’s beautiful. This one came to us from Avalus who says,
I found this spider in August when I was riding home from work under the lit handrail of a pedestrian bridge. She had many moths woven in silk hanging just under the rail, so it seems she picked a good spot. She did not like the flash too much. I think it is a common orbweaver (Kreuzspinne – “cross spider” in german).
Photos are below the fold. The detail in the second shot is outstanding. Thanks for sharing, Avalus.
