Common orb web spider Araneus diadematus. Think in the last two shots it's looking for it's sawfly.

Excellent set Brian, did you have much difficulty getting these shots due to wind?

Thanks for the comments Bryce and Dave :)

Dave- was fairly calm when I took these esp as the web was in a fairly protected position on the side of a bush.
