Spider in huge web

Description:

Observed in ornamental citrus. The leaves are 5-7cm long, to give you an idea of the size of the spider.
The amazing web seems to be a combination of tangle and orb (a horizontal platform under which the spider is sitting, seen in the second photo which was taken from underneath, looking upwards).
