Excellent, Lucas - I love those spiders that sit in the X-wing configuration. Is this a type of Argiope? We've got the silver argiope variety down here, that sit in that manner, and have the same type of large circular body.

Thanks, Justin! Yes, that's the Silver Argiope also called Garden Argiope. I have some of those on the garden. That one has a 3cm long body and about 16 cm legs spread.

I'm sorry, I must've been a bit sleepy, spider's body length is about 2cm and spread 5cm!
