Winged Orb-weaver

Araneus albotriangulus


A small orb weaver spider, possibly juvenile, practising nest making among the protective spines of a very prickly acacia.
Approx. 10mm long


In a local nature reserve with manicured gardens.
Wally Tew Reserve


The yellow pattern on the abdomen seems variable.
The web looks quite chaotic suggesting this one is a beginner?
