Ladybird Spider (Paraplectana sp.) by melvynyeo

Quote from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orb-weav…

The typical orb-weaver spiders (family Araneidae) are the most common group of builders of spiral wheel-shaped webs often found in gardens, fields and forests. Their common name is taken from the round shape of this typical web, and the taxon was formerly also referred to as the Orbiculariae.

Orb-weavers have eight similar eyes, hairy or spiny legs, and no stridulating organs. The Araneidae family is cosmopolitan, including many well-known large or brightly colored garden spiders. The 3,006 species in 168 genera worldwide make Araneidae the third-largest family of spiders known (behind Salticidae and Linyphiidae).[1] The orb-weavers include over 10,000 species and make up about 25% of spider diversity.[2]

This is so strange, because I had once a dream in which all spiders had very colorful body, and some of them looked like ladybugs, but I didn't knew then, that such spiders actually existed! Some very strange deja vu!

Anyway, beautiful shot! I love your gallery :)
