Unknown Spider - Metellina segmentata

Found this spider in Kirkland on the edge of a wetland with a lot of other spiders. It was on a wall and I could not find the web.

Mesh Web
After some looking I think it may be a Mesh Web Weaver, still looking for genus and possible species to research further.

 
Same species as another post
Metellina segmentata, thank you Lynette.

 
Araneus
It looks more like Araneus to me. I was just looking at them today because I had one I thought resembled a green lynx spider that wound up being Araneus.
