This is the first time I've gotten more than a quick glimpse of a Yellow Garden Spider. Usually they're off like a rocket as soon as you're within 15 feet of them.

These colourful arachnids are also known as the Writing Spider because of the intricate pattern they weave fully across their web.

As I approached the web of course this lady was zoom - gone to the very top of the bush. I had to concentrate on something else for a while until she came back to her meal.

She was not going to abandon whatever she had wrapped up in that sac.

Just a bit of a different angle so that I wouldn't scare her off her meal. She stayed there until it was done, then disappeared back into the bush as night fell.

Excellent shots. We get them around the house every so often. Usually results in fewer mosquitoes around.

Cracking shots Roger, they look like they are an impressive size for a web spider.

Thanks Ryan, and yes they are. This lady was about one inch long through the body, and almost 3 inches long if you count the legs.

Interesting write up and good photographs with clear detail to match.

She looks quite dangerous and there are plenty of people who'd give her more than 15' clearance :grin:

Thank you, Edward. I do have more than one friend who would use the proverbial 10 foot pole to try and obliterate her. :chain-gun:
