Comments & ID Thoughts

I just saw this on the pavement in Fulham, London and am very curious to find out what it is. The picture was zoomed in to capture it it’s true size I would say it was slightly bigger than a 50p coin including legs.

Hi, she’s an Araneus diadematus. The common name is cross orbweaver. She is the kind of spider that makes a web like the spiderweb emoji.
