Orb web spider

Photo of the ventral view of the Orb web spider Araniella cucurbitina (Araneidae). Orb web spiders stay at the center of their web waiting for a prey to come across and receive the deadly bite. The black spot on the top of the abdomen in the spider of the photo shows that this is a female.
