Good point Ashley:-)

Very cool! All spiders need to make an X like that, then I might stop running into their webs and accidentally destroying them!

Thanks RiekoS and Lauren. In this case X marks the spot not to go if you're a bird or bat:-)

Beautiful shot.

Very time consuming X that it made, but worth his time, since it shows so well. No bird or bat will fly into that!

Thanks for the help Burnuhwill and Sckel. After doing a little searching on the net, I came up with a good match for Argiope savignyi on these 2 sites.
