Spied 'er

This little girl is a Saint Andrew's Cross spider (Argiope keyserlingi)  She's not a huge specimen as these things go, probably eight or so millimetres across the the shoulders (that's about three eighth's of an inch).  

The "shadow" is a male, who no doubt has been invited into her parlour for an afternoon in the shade of the leaf which glows above.

I must roll around upside down in my garden more often!
