I was thinking this was some type of crab spider, but ran across this while viewing the guide. But since I'm usually not right, thought I'd better ask. Other poses, if needed.
Thanks!

Nice shot
and good job figuring out the ID.

 
Araneus guttulatus
Thanks, Lynette. I'm usually not very good with ID's, but try.

Yes, good detective work!
A couple more images from different perspectives would be very welcome in the guide. This is not a spider that gets posted often. Thanks for sharing. Nice find!

 
Araneus guttulatus
Thanks for confirming. Goes to show, even a novice can get lucky sometimes. I'll add a couple of extra shots, though with high winds and it being difficult to see, I'm afraid they aren't the best quality.
