Anyone know what this is? Not sure I have seen one before.

Taken through a window with an old Canon FD 50/3.5.

Good capture- think it's an orbweb spider- Araneus species.

Brian is correct! I think this one is a Araneus cavaticus, or Barn Spider as they are called around here.
Wonderful shot too!
