Moved from Araneus.

Moved from ID Request. I don't think it's diadematus.

Nice capture!
We don't know if Araneus diadematus can look like this or not. We would lean toward A. nordmanii, but let's see what you hear from others.

 
Thanks!
That was sure speedy! I appreciate the help and will wait for additional opinions before I officially lable it on my blog.
