// St. Andrew’s Cross Spider (Argiope sp.) //
Easy peasy spidey ID:
Young Argiopes are very creative in their web design. They love to spin pretty squiggly patterns that radiate from the centre of the web. Like us humans, as they get older, the world takes a toll on their imaginativeness. Freedom of expression is suppressed. The lovely patterns are reduced to a few zig-zag bands.
