Crossed paths with this fellow on a stroll through a park just outside of the city. Actually the park was overrun with these beauties, every tree, bush and or crossroad had one or two of the larger female with a few smaller males at the corners of the web. Known as Nephila clavata or Jorōgumo (Japanese) her ~30mm body is framed by long stripped legs and brilliant colors making for an imposing site, lucky for us they are not poisonous to humans.
