Male and Female Cross Spider

By emlad
Cross spider is also known as Common Garden Spider. The male is smaller here and could either be attempting mating or under attack from the female? A very tricky situation and not without risk.

This is really an excellent close up Eric ! Do these females also have the males for lunch after the mating ?
