European Garden Spider

Araneus diadematus

Description:

Individual spiders' colouring can range from extremely light yellow to very dark grey, but all European garden spiders have mottled markings across the back, with five or more large, white dots forming a cross. The white dots result from cells filled with guanine, which is a byproduct of protein metabolism.

Habitat:

Very commonly found through-out Europe and North America
