Another view of our garden spider with lunch. This one was taken from the back and you may not be able to see the food bolus.
However, you can clearly see the complex web and how the spider is climbing on it. The web spirals out from the center and can be two feet across.
The female’ web is longer than the male’s and the male’s is a zig-zag of silk. You can see the zig-zag web here so this very well might be a male!
