Orb spider, possibly Aculepeira? - Aculepeira packardi

Orb spider, possibly Aculepeira? - Aculepeira packardi
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, San Diego County, California, USA
March 2, 2010
This orb spider was on Cheesebush in Arroyo Salada Wash in the low hot desert. It looks somewhat like #349635,Aculepeira, but these desert orbs are so similar. I have one other that is similar, but not quite the same that we saw in similar habitat a couple of days earlier. I will post it next. Any help with these spiders is much appreciated.
