Web Master..................

     This is somewhat  a common spider I see around. I know this one belongs to the genus Agriope but I don't know what species it is. Could anybody tell me?
       By the way, do you guys remember my last post, about my birding retreat? The rocky outcrop covered with vegetation, one that boarders the coconut Plantation, I climbed it today. When I got to the top I saw it, right in front of me........ Whooa, I almost told you! Stay put for tomorrow's post if you wanna know! (wink)

  1. SUCH a beauty! We get argiopes here too - we get a type of black and yellow that is commonly called a "garden spider".

    Can't wait to see what you saw!

  10. It looks similar to ones I've seen in central Japan in summer, sorry but I have no idea which species it is!

  11. Hi people, Happy to see everyone like my captures!:)

    texwisgirl,Stu,Apparently there are many Agriope species around the world,and Sri Lanka alone seems to have more than one.

    rainfield61, Your creative spirit shows on your comments too,that's cool!

    Jemina,Between you and me,I'm a little vary of spiders too,though not as much as not to get close and photograph them,but a million dollars in cash wouldn't get me to touch one!;)
