A orb-weaver spider on a raindrop- spangled web with the trapped prey in St Mellons, Cardiff, UK , September 12, 2012.. Orb weavers really are some of the most fascinating spiders in our gardens, the architects of those lovely webs of perfect symmetry and design. They seem to become more common and noticeable in the late summer and fall, as all of the eggs produced by the females have hatched, and the new spiders have set about their task of creating webs and catching their food.
