Found in hard rush near garden pond. Long front legs extended. Globe web nearby.
No interactions present.
Not enough detail in image (and he added his ID while I was thinking about mine!). Bah.....

Hi Steve, I don't think it's Larinioides and the abdominal pattern seems like one of the Metellina species to me.

Hi Chris, I'm happy to go with your judgement. It clearly wasn't Tetragnatha (which we both agree on). That was my main concern.
Sorry, posted the wrong photo and tried to edit it almost immediately but obviously wasn't successful. Will try again.
Hi Gill, I wouldn't change the image now as it will put all the comments out of context. Just post the other image as a separate entry.
Thanks, will do.
