Nice.
We call them plain ol' garden spiders. I have seen take a bumble bee and wrap it up in seconds.

Thanks. The wasp spider is a member of the orb web family, as is the common garden spider but much bigger and at least over here you would not find them in a garden. What also sets them apart is the zig zag below the main part of the web which they use to attract prey

This is the same spider as here. We find them in a variety of places..where there is taller grasses, plants, etc.
No clue why we call them "garden spiders".
I cannot reach it (it's in reeds) but I wanted to shoot one yesturday. A good 2 inches.

Never thought I'd say a spider was pretty, but that one is. Nice shot, Stan.

thanks, they are certainly hard to miss
Nice work Stan. How big is this one?
thanks Mike. They are not that big in comparison to many, the female, which i think this one is, around 15mm body length, the male much smaller
