It looks like a yellow garden spider


This looks like a St. Andrew’s Cross Spider or the corn spider in the US – also known as black and yellow garden spider amongst other names.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argiope_keyserlingi Hi Ana! The link is to the spider with the common name of St. Andrew’s Cross Spider. They are closely related to the one in the photo, same genus. Unfortunately, the common names can overlap multiple species. The species in the photo is Argiope aurantia.
