Araneus marmoreus

Polymorphic - This spider has many color varieties. The most common form has an orange front part of the body (cephalothorax) with orange/white/black banded legs. The abdomen on this form is either orange or yellow with a pattern that resembles a face to some observers. Other color varieties include one that is very pale tan or yellow, sometimes with a black spot in the middle of the abdomen.
Harmless - This species, as is common to members of the orbweaver family, is not known to bite humans. It preys on a variety of flying insects.
Nocturnal - The spiders build their web at dusk and either wait in the web or in a retreat near the web at night for prey to strike the web. Then the spider runs out and wraps the prey in silk. After the prey is immobilized, the prey is bitten and eventually eaten. Some individuals stay in their webs during the day, but this is not common. They typically rebuild their web each day, or at least the sticky spiral orb part.

Hi Heinz,
This is a wonderful close up capture.
Nice point of view,sharpness and details.
Greatjob.

Hallo Heinz,
näher geht nicht mehr! Man kann wunderschön sehen, wie sie den Faden "spinnt".
Bin eigentlich nicht so sehr begeistert von Spinnen, so nahe komme ich also nicht heran, außer mit einem guten Tele ;-) Vielen Dank und Gruß

Hello Heinz,

Even if the abdomen is not perfectly in focus, I like the fact that we see it with the thread going out the end of its abdomen... ! Excellent pov and good blurry bg!

Bravo and TFS,

Michel

Hello Heinz,
You got a very interesting moment here, when the spider is at work doing his web.
Nice POV, and the background works pretty well with the DOF used, I like a lot these deep greens.
Perhaps the body of the insect is a little OOF.
Congratulations and happy holidays,
JM

Haha... Heinz.
You certainly caught him in the act... of spinning.
Great POV allowing the view of the silk actually coming out of the spinneret in the back. Unusual perspective of spider and web.
TFS this very interesting shot. : )
Fröhliche Weihnachten, mein Freund!

Hallo Heinz,
fröhlich präsentierte Kehrseite einer prächtig funkelnden Spinne, die Spinnweben absondert, die aussehen wie feinstes Lametta. Vielleicht engagiere ich sie, damit sie meinen Weihnachtsbaum dekoriert. :)
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,
Peter

Dir und Deiner Familie, lieber Heinz, noch schöne und hoffentlich besinnliche Adventtage und gesegnete Weihnachten!

Hi Heinz,

Happy Holidays,
Scott

interessante rückansicht, die du uns da eingefangen hast, heinz! :-)
da habe ich bei meinen vielen spinnenbildern noch gar nicht dran gedacht.
es ist cool zu sehen, wie der faden wirklich aus der kreuzspinne herauskommt.
das muss ich mir für den nächsten sommer merken.
danke, viele grüße & ein tolles weihn8sfest,
thorsten.
