  1. No, spiders aren’t insects. Your “basic” insect has six legs and usually two pairs of wings. Spiders have 8 legs and no wings, not never. I think this one is Aranea diademata. It’s hard to see in this picture but I think the white markings on the back would be in the shape of a cross if you could see them from above, which is where the “diademata” probably comes from. Quite pretty really.
