Macro Monday 09-21-09 Spidey

Macro Monday - hosted by Lisa







I got up close and personal with this spider the other day. Aren't her markings spectacular?



She seems to be repairing a hole in the web...



...which is such a fascinating bit of architecture.



This is her underbelly - can't see the web because of the white background. I think this is a common cross spider, Araneus diadematus
.

Wow! Great shots of both the spider and the web! The underbelly of the spider gave my stomach a whirl...I do hope she stays on that web! Great post!

Jay said...

Yep, that's a Common Cross spider! We get a lot of them here. In fact, there is one just outside our back door, spinning a huge web... shhh! Don't tell OH!!

She is rather gorgeous, isn't she? Great pictures, too!
