Comments & ID Thoughts

Argiope Trifasciata (Banded Garden Spider).
She hatched three egg sacks. Almost two weeks later the weather unexpectedly changed and it hailed in Nicosia Two days later, the spider disappeared. Its web loosened but the sacks stayed put. A month later, 1st of July, one of them hatched and on the 4th of July followed the second one. The baby- spiders stay on the web for a day and thereafter disappear.
