Nice shots Jackie! We haven’t sighted these guys here in Wonboyn yet this Summer. Keeping our eyes open though.

Goodness. They seem to be one of the most common spiders. Maybe they like more open habitat.

We usually see them by mid November but not so far this year. Here’s a link to a video I made of Argiope mating a couple of years ago. https://vimeo.com/227002948
