Thanks to the people at Jetto’s Patch for helping me identifying this spider and giving me some info about it.
They reckon it’s a golden orb weaver. [If she’s a golden orb spider the threads of her web will glow gold in the light.]
It’s a friend as it catches flies and mozzies and the damn cabbage moths. They reckon it’s a her as well=p She often take her web down in the morning and rebuild it in the evening. [That is dedication]
Spiders are generally classed into ‘guilds’ based on their mode of hunting. The more guilds you have present, the richer and bio diverse and ecologically healthy your garden is.
