Arachnida (2): Green Orb Spider, female

I was delighted to find what I think must be a female Green Orb Arianella spider, having encountered the more rotund male for the first time some days ago. Both were spotted in Suffolk.

Do take a look at this remarkable photo of one preparing her egg case here.

oh, what exciting finds you've posted today. first this wonderful spider and then the ladybugs below. i think the ladybugs are the best find though as the eggs are something you don't see everyday. nice capture. thanks for sharing them with us. have a great day~
