Sorry, no other shots were possible. To get them I had to disturb the spider which I did not want to do.

Pity you didn't get the other side too. I see two similar possibilities; eriophoria sp. and Backobourkia sp.

Still no closer to identifying my own images. The same choices apply.

Thanks Dave. Will try doing some research. Though I am not very good at spiders :-)

Looks like Backobourkia sp. I can't even identify my own, let alone this one :)

Not sure exactly what kind of spider it is Jemma :-)

this ventral view looks very similar to that of Garden Orb Weaver.
