Lobed Argiope 2

By alistairfarrugia    
Once again, came across the "Brimba Kbira tal-Widien", which literally translates to "The large spider of the valleys". This lobed argiope had a nicely spun web between some flowers as well as some prey caught and "gift-wrapped" in the web, for later consumption! As is typical with these spiders, the web featured the tell-tale zig-zag patterns, visible just ahead of the spider's head. I have taken other shots of this spider yesterday and might upload some more at a later time. Hope you like this one and as usual, comments, critique and mods are more than welcome.
