Garden Cross spider

This is another spider I found at Morden Bog, Garden Cross spider, a common species. Spiders are more visible at this time of year because they have become mature in size making them more noticeable. Walk along the hedgerow on a non windy, sunny day you will find them. I say non windy, it is not easy getting a good picture of a spider on it's web on a windy day. Another problem I encountered is that a lot of the spiders are on the wrong side of their web, it's geat when you find one on the right side, still tricky though, particularly when the spider is on gorse.

Lovely shot.

I've seen quite a few big ones of these recently.

Super image Linda. They do tend to be on the wrong side of the web, don't they! However, I think that they look more sinister from the underside.
