Moved
Moved from ID Request. Assuming this specimen is near maturity I'm guessing it's A. florida. The humps are smaller than the other species. Next time see if you can get that ventral shot. It makes IDing these a cinch.

I have other images- is there something LYNN
that I can use to rule in or out florida or argentata???

 
Yes
A closer shot of the bumps on the abdomen could help and if it's mature, and if you have a ventral that should tell us instantly.

 
Ugh might not have what you need
but loading some now.

or maybe Argiope florida

Silver Argiope ?
Maybe like this.
