Araneus diadematus on Yew Tree Heath, New Forest
This garden spider (Araneus diadematus) had spun its web between two gorse bushes on the heathland edge east of Decoy Pond Farm. This picture illustrates this extract from LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ... "The females build large orb webs, as much as 3 feet in diameter, and sit upside-down in the center of the web, on the side angled downward. As soon as prey disturbs the web, they immediately attack and subdue it by wrapping it in silk."
