This spider was sitting on my backyard door this evening, it's about an inch in length. Anyone know what it is?
I'm fairly certain this is a fairly common Cross Spider (aka European garden spider, Diadem spider, or Orb weaver). Have attached photo taken by myself in back garden this morning. I think these are both the larger female.
Thanks Littlemike, looks like you're right. I joked with the mrs that if it went unidentified I'd name it after her due to it's hairy legs . It didn't go down well.
