Spotted this spider a few months ago on a wooden gate post at a local nature reserve. Thought it could be Araniella cucurbitina but not certain, since this specimen is quite colourful. Size is small, about the width of my thumbnail, maybe 2cm across at most. Didn't see a web so I'm not sure if it's an orb web, sheet web or tangle web weaver.
