I found this spider about 4:00 PM clinging to the side of our garage in a shady spot. There was no web although it did begin to spin when I disturbed it. It looks a little like an Araneus diadematus that I photographed previously but I'm pretty certain it's enough different not to be the same thing. I should be able to distinguish male spiders from females by now but I can't. Which is this one? Can anyone help with an ID? Is is Araneus?
