Decorative Silver Orb Spider

Leucauge sp

Description:

It was a beautiful day. The weather was very pleasant. I found more than 10 pairs of this beautiful spider in a 10 m X 10 m area. Almost all of them were in the process of mating. The pair seen here was cautious and hesitant to approach each other. I waited for more than an hour for something to happen. But it didn't :-( I moved onto observing the next pair, they were very active and the picture can be seen here: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/385...
