Photo of Golden Orb Weaver (Argiope aurantia)
I don’t need help identifying this one (I think). It seems to perfectly fit the female Golden Orb Weaver, according to everything I’ve seen.

Hi Greg,
Your identification is correct. This species is also called a Black and Yellow Orb Weaver or a Writing Spider. Your photo shows a beautiful web.
