She’s a Furrow Orbweaver in genus Larinioides. There are three species in that genus in Michigan. Here’s the sightings that Bugguide.net has recorded for your state: https://bugguide.net/adv_search/bgsearch.php?taxon=33791&location%5B%5D=MI Where they just have the genus name or Larinioides sp., that means they didn’t feel they should guess the species from the photo. Your photo is very good and I am hopeful that our moderator might be able to identify it to species.
