The spider is brown with a large black patch on a creamy section in the middle of the back of its abdomen. On this black patch are three spots looking like two eyes and a mouth. It is close to the centre of its closely woven web - web about 27 cm diameter but doesn't show up on the photograph. I had to hold my white notebook immediately behind the web in order to get a focussed image as the camera otherwise insisted on focussing on the brickwork behind.
