I had one of these living in my old bird table a couple of summers back, and moved her to the new bird table last year when we disposed of the old table. I never saw her again after that day - so I assumed she had moved to another part of the garden, or maybe reached old age and perished anyway.

I was pleased to go out in the garden late last night for a look around to find her once again (or maybe a solitary offspring?) once more on the (new) bird table. Means I may get further opportunity t photography this delightfully marked, not often seen, spider.

I like the second one a lot. I think the composition with the wood background is very nice with the diagonals. Color scheme works really well with the spider's colors. Nicely done!

I touch more light on the spider's details would be cool, but I really like these.

Beautiful captures, Paul. Put a tag in her ear so you can track her from year to year :)

Haha Travis - I doubt she could go far really, the flies and wasps are plentiful enough to keep her interested in staying, lol... :)
