Garden Safari - Hammer House

By JeremyCC
Araneus diadematus an Orb-web spider is the most common garden spider in Western Europe and can be identified by the distinctive white cross on the abdomen. It generally sits either at the center of its large circular web or in a retreat at the end of a signal line.

After all the nice spider pics on the site I got inspired to have a go one evening. I got a few images that I am relativeley happy so in time you may see more of this wee little beastie and his mates. Indeed as you might guess from the title I thought I would make a little project out of our little patch of mud. The subtitle is from what type of film the pose makes makes me think of - here it looks like a Hollywood monster.
