I spotted this one while taking a walk around the office complex. She sets up camp in this same spot every day.

This is an Argiope aurantia or Black & Yellow Garden Spider.

They are pretty fascinating. I recommend clicking through and reading about them. The craziest part..."After mating, the male dies, and is sometimes then eaten by the female." Ouch.
