Comments & ID Thoughts
I could be wrong but from what I found this may be a Neoscona crucifera (Hentz Orb-weaver)
I have a few other pics that may help. As it rested on a cardboard box flap, i nervously bumped the box and it shifted so i couldnt get a good full body pic. Also, if you look close there are a couple really small bugs crawling around the spider. I didn't notice until recently, wonder what they are? Was the spider possibly snacking on them like this?
Thank you all.
