A friend of mine took this photo of a spider up on the soffit of her front porch. We were hoping that someone may be able to ID it. Thank you. :)

I read the comments on the other image, and apparently this is known as the "eyeball" morph of the marbled orb weaver and maybe 1 in 20 have this appearance. So interesting that the other was found in Alaska. Thank you so much for your help. :)
