help with Spider ID please

Postby clax » Mon Sep 20, 2010 7:27 pm

I found this spider Sept 20th will hiking in a shaded forest with ferns just outside of Victoria, BC, Canada. I walked though it's web and it almost land on me. It would estimate it's size to me about 1.5 inch diameter.

I've this to a few people that have been here their whole lives and it didn't look familiar to them. Can someone please ID it?

thank-you,
Clay

It's an orb weaver, but not sure what kind. Maybe a cat's-face? Do you have these in BC?
