Could you help to identify this big spider?
May be a Silver Orb Spider ???
Found: 18. Oct. 2011, on an external, insect-trapping web.

Hello Jürgen,
Our research did not turn up anything conclusive.  We agree that this is an Orbweaver, and it might be in the genus
Argiope.  Perhaps in the future, we will be able to provide a more specific identification.
