garden orb weaver spider on thistle plant

Well, not really, though that’s what the pattern on garden orb-weaver spiders has always reminded me of. This one was lurking in thistles. She was pretty big—I’d say at least a centimetre for the biggest part of her body. and very rotund—so I wonder if she’s preparing to lay some eggs. Pretty, isn’t she?
