Comments & ID Thoughts
I think this is some kind of garden spider? But it’s something new to me. I’ve lived here for 18 years and it’s the first time I’ve come across one looking like this.

Hi, I think this is Araneus diadematus. They appear to have much color variation in the U.K.
Thanks for that. He was beautiful, I’d never seen one like it in my area before.
