Araneus diadematus


medium sized spider with brownish orange banded legs. Broadly oval body with mottled markings across the back, with five or more large, white dots forming a cross.


was hanging on this web by my sliding door so couldn't get a good picture of his marking on his back without distorting the web by opening the door, but the white dots forming a cross was there.
