Orb Spider

By Marian
Taken in my back garden yesterday. I was amazed at the wonderful designs on him as I looked more closely, at this little creature I do not really like - A Spider!
Do you know what it's called pleased?

Stunning closeup Marian; the detail is superb, that cross pattern is amazing and almost looks cute - how big was it?

Once again, many thanks for your comments.
Tim: He was quite big - I would estimate about 1 1/2 inches.
