Argiope wasp spider

Argiope bruennichi


The common name of this beautiful spider is wasp spider. This spider is, like all orb-weavers, not poisonous for us. The spider prefers to weave her web between grass at a height of 20 -30 cm. The adult female has a shining silvery cephalothorax (head) and a yellowish abdomen with black and white bars across it. The pictured very large female, was spotted along many more spiders of her species, in a prairie in Tzoumerka mountains National park, Epirus region, Greece.
