Spider Photos -  Araneus Cingulatus

Here's some photos of those common Garden spiders from the Orb Weaving family.   My apologies if there are some Araneus on pages where they don't belong but they are very hard to classify. Try this page for a species guide:

ORB WEAVERS/GARDEN SPIDERS

Orb weavers (Araneidae) are often brightly coloured with rounded abdomens, some with peculiarly angled humps or spines. However, there is considerable variation in size, colour and shape in this group. They are often recognized for building beautiful, large, round webs, on which they rest, head downward, waiting for prey. The webs consist of a number of radiating threads crossed by two spirals. The inner spiral begins in the centre, winds outward, and is made of smooth threads like the radiating threads. It covers only the central 1/3 of the web. The outer spiral begins at the edges and winds inward. It is made of more elastic, sticky threads, coated with a liquid substance. One of the largest and most commonly encountered members of this group is Argiope aurantia, the black and yellow garden spider and we have photos of them and other argiopes on their own page.
