She's still in the Darlingtonia house and feeding well. There's another web not far away from her's but I've not found the resident as yet.
The bottom photo is of another Araneus, possibly her sister, who's taken up residence in the top greenhouse. She's a bit miffed because I accidentally broke half her web when I was up checking the Drosophyllum.
A topside view of one of the two in the Darlingtonia house, complete with her prey ( Bluebottle - Calliphora vomitoria ) She's a much lighter colour than the one above from the top greenhouse and to get the photo I had to shoot through the polycarbonate so the crispness is just a tad off.
This is the No.2 in the top greenhouse ( there is a No.3). She's well back behind the large case so I have to use quite a lot of zoom.
Colouring is much like No.1 ( with the lily beetle) but of course the pattern is individual
Just after taking the above I spotted this little lady in the plants out on the patio. I do mean small, compared to the ones in the greenhouses she's tiny. She was blowing back and forward and MrsG had to hold the green thingy behind her so I could get any semblance of focus.
Her legs and head are a red-blonde which the green background somewhat neutralises. One I'll keep an eye on though.
fredg: I don't think Roger knows how the Y's are worn during the ceremony

dvg: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned

dvg: It's truly saddening to me that we've made headlines due to an inept and unaccountable provincial government, paralyzed by politics...
