Not spot on this one.  The web was stretched across the neighbour's yard and the wind was whipping it about. ...john

There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

You can see the remnants of the "Cross" in this wide shot:



This is an Argiope, probably the Silver Orb Weaver, Argiope florida or some closely related subspecies.

Well caught Cholly.  At least spiders in webs usually sit still.  Captured spiders mostly do not want to be models and shun the light ! ....john
