|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|All good things come with time, which is what Iíve learned. Iíve upgraded my camera (didnít have a choice), and now time is something I donít have enough of. But I can say that with a smile!!|
This arachnid joined us as we were camping over the weekend, spinning his web between the tent pole and anchor rope. It took him about 5 minutes to complete a perfect silk web, before the waiting started. I had the opportunity to take a few shots with him/her sitting still, although the wind didnít really play along.
Iím not sure what specimen this is, if someone can please assist or point me in the right direction. What I can tell you is that it is about 5mm long and the colors are true as I only adjusted the brightness and contrast.

Araneus diadematus is popularly known as the "Garden Spider", and indeed it is quite common in gardens, though it is more a species of scrubby heathland or amongst gorse.
It is a typical spider, with, in this species, eight eyes, its thorax and abdomen clearly differentiated, the abdomen lacking any external segmentation and with a silk-producing spinner at the rear.
I am not absolutely sure. It must be confirmed by a more experimented member.

Pragtige skoot Riaan! You captured this very well, but Gerhard (Mr Spiderman himself) will be the best man to provide an ID. My guys is that it could be one of the Hairy Field Spiders (Genera Neoscona, Araneus or Afraraneus) or so my little program tells me :)
I like the composition as well.
I posted a WS but cannot see it here?
