Juveniles St Andrew Cross spider by melvynyeo Juveniles St Andrew Cross spider by melvynyeo
Web building is truly a masterpiece. Taken at night in Singapore forest.

Quote from www.findaspider.org.au/find/sp…

The common name of this species is derived from its habit of producing and resting on a stabilimentum, which is a cross of serrated (zigzag) silk. In one season an adult female will produce several leaf-like, green egg sacs, these being attached to a wall or tree trunk in close proximity to the web.

Males lack the bright colours of the females and are much smaller. Juveniles are also pale and reside on very small circular webs which can often be found in quite large numbers.

Ehhhh, that's amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Did you use the flash? Did you use the camera on auto or manual?
