I have lived in this house for 25 years and never seen a spider like this before.
Well today, unbelievably, this spider positioned itself on my front door. Measuring its leg spread, it measured 10cms or a little more. I had to look it up, and discovered it was a Net-casting Spider.
"Net-casting Spiders have a unique way of catching their prey. They make a small web in the form of a net held by the front legs that can be stretched out wide to envelop an unwary insect passing by.
