@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:

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?
