What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Do you know what kind of spider this is?
Hi. I believe I sent you a picture of a spider before. This one was found out in the Conservation District Parking Lot. I thought it may be some kind of Orb Weaver but it’s hard to say. Please let me know what you think.
Thank You,

Hi Cathy,
This is an Araneus Orb Weaver. There is much color variation within species and many species look similar and require anatomical examination to differentiate them. It is a lovely orange specimen.
