Description

I knocked down a mud dauber nest and found several paralyzed spiders, all different species. This one has an egg on him, visible in one of the photos. I took the egg off and put all the spiders in a safe place where if they regain motion they can escape.

Not sure what it is, didn't see it on a web, but I think it's an orbweaver. It is a beautiful silver-chrome spider. I provide a dorsal view of the entire spider, a view of the eyes, and a ventral view.

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.
