Lovely series Chassy!Welcome to the Community!
@bayucca.. thanks it really helped a lot! I was also thanking Tanya Guiler for her compliment on the photo to which I might have included on a single post. My apologies. Thanks for your compliment now. I try my best to take a better photo since I love photography too.. That is a nice read. Thanks for the help.
I did not make a compliment yet on the photo, but I do it now! That's actually a very beautiful picture! I love the great body sharpness and perspective in #1. The second shot is very helpful for ID. The architecture you talked about is a so called stabilimentum. Look at the link, there are some interesting infos about this natural wonder:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_decorat...
thanks for the help..it was good to know what kind of spider it was :) thanks also for the compliment on the photo..
Definitely Argiope sp., I think it might be Appensa. Some of them show reddish legs some grayish ones. It is also known as an introduced species in Hawaii (Hawaii garden spider).
it made a special design on it's web. Spotted this at their old cemetery in Siquijor but then after going around the island I spotted more of these type of spider--I guess it's endemic to the island?
