[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This species builds its webs close to the ground in reeds or tall grass. Like other Argiope species it tends to occupy a stabilimentum in the centre of its web. Distinguishing features of this cosmopolitan spider are its yellow, white and black abdominal bands and its pattern of leg bands.

Nice capture, Assi.

A higher f number (why use f/4 at such high speed?) and a smaller ISO value (why 2000?) would have have increase the DOF, reduce the noise, and improve the quality of the image.

All the best,
