European garden spider - Araneus diadematus (cross spider) is a very common and well-known orb-weaver spider in Europe and parts of North America, in a range extending from New England and the Southeast to California and the northwestern United States and adjacent parts of southern Canada.Adult females range in length from 6.5 to 20 mm, while males range from 5.5 to 13 mm.The third pair of legs of garden spiders are specialized for assisting in the spinning of orb webs. These spiders also use them to move around on their web without getting stuck.

Hallo Slawomir
This is a lovely image that has lots of impact on the eye. Details of the lovely patterns and markings on the spider's body is seen with great clarity, just as the web threads, that is so beautifully shown in the golden sunlight. I like the point of view and the almost full framed composition. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
