Spider on web back of church, with shadow

I was wandering around the outside of our church, with our camera, looking for something to photograph. A boy noticed me and the camera, and suggested that I photograph this animal, which I hadn't seen yet. So I did. Thanks.

 

"The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings' palaces." Proverbs 30:28 (KJV).

 

Jude's Jewels (see her comment below) has identified this as Araneaus diadematus. Lynette S. (see her comment) says that she thinks it's Argiope aurantia. Some others concur, and I guess I'll go with that identification.
