Orb Weaver - male

Orb Weaver - Male
White Fox, Torch River, Saskatchewan, Canada
September 13, 2016
Size: ~12 mm
Turned up on a sheet I covered a tomato plant with last night. It didn't freeze, but 3C is cool for this large, old, slow moving spider. Close to 12 mm body length despite looking dehydrated.
After browsing the guide Araneus saevus looks close.
