Comments & ID Thoughts

Is this a Silver Marsh Spider, female?

The spider is in the centre of an orb web, which is built on a slant of about 45 degrees at about knee height off the ground. The spider is always on the underside, with its head pointing downwards.

It is Leucauge festiva, Masked Vlei Spider. Reminds me very much or our own Leucauge venusta – a beautiful spider.
