To whom it may concern,
I’m not too fussed about knowing what this spider is, but thought I’d send some a couple pictures I took of it. We did have to move it from it’s web to mow the lawn, but it was a very healthy specimen judging from it’s food supply. The web itself was reasonably strong too.

Hi Victoria,
Though you did not provide a location in your email, your email address hints at Australia. That helped us identify your spider as a Golden Orb Weaver, Nephila ornata. The common name is due to the color of the silk, not the color of the spider.
