Argiope lobata is a species of spider belonging to the family Araneidae. It has a wide distribution encompassing the whole of Africa and stretching to southern Europe and into Asia.

The male of this species is small (body length 6 mm) but the female is large and spectacular at up to 25 mm in length. The silver abdomen is marked with black and red spots and carries deep furrows and distinctive lobes around the edge. As with other spiders in this genus, the large web is usually decorated with prominent zig-zag stabilimenta.

Hi MF Josep,

Utterly amazing macro capture of this Argiope from great POV.
The clarity, details, focus and exposure are all impressive! I also captured one similar species in Cyprus but i am not sure its exact id.
TFS and have a nice saturday MF!
Cheers,

Bayram

Hi Ignasi,
A nice capture of this strange looking spider. Very well captured with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Ola Josep
bellissimo scatto ed allo stesso momento molto inquietante, almeno per le piccole prede del ragno che una volta finite nella ragnatela avranno ben poche possibilità di sfuggire al loro destino. Ottima definizione e dettaglio.
