Caption: Macrophoto of Argiope bruennichi, an orb-weaving spider which builds its web at ground level in grass and other low vegetation. It is found in parts of France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Britain. The zig zagging spiral pattern is known as stabilimentum. It is thought the visible pattern acts as a warning to larger animals or as a uv-reflecting lure to attract prey.
