Egg sac - Araneus diadematus

Egg sac - Araneus diadematus
Alameda County, California, USA
November 25, 2012
Ma Cross stayed on the egg sac until November 17 and then vanished. Sometimes she would take water or sugar water from a saturated cotton swab. She consumed two fruit flies on November 1 but took no interest later in live insects that I offered.

I collected the egg sac on November 25.
