A single individual out on a sunny day, not on a web. Late afternoon, humid, not windy. About a foot off the ground, very close to the edge of the Ouse where a large number of Mediterranean geckos and earth snakes live.

Description from Wikipedia

Argiope trifasciata (also known as the banded garden spider in the United States) is a species of spider found around the world. It can be found in certain areas of Europe, namely the Iberian Peninsula, the Canary Islands or Madeira. The similar looking Argiope bruennichi is common in the Azores. Considered a pest in some areas, they typically begin to appear during autumn from early September to late October as temperatures start dropping.
