Garden Spider  (Araneus Diadematus)

On the 17/10/2011 My wife found this female garden spider on our doorstep and she placed it into a container for when I returned home from work. I told her it is only a garden spider and was about to return it when I thought it would make a good photographic subject on a white background because I only ever see and photograph this spider on a large web. It was a very windy day so maybe it was blown or sheltering in our porch. The resulting pictures showed detail that I did not notice before especially the eyes at the front protected by hair. The spider was very calm and I returned it to an overhang on old wendy house in our garden to live the rest of its days, a really lovely spider.
