This is an orb weaver …Argiope trifasciata….the banded Argiope…https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/67708-Argiope-trifasciata

I wonder if the ball looked like an unprotected egg sac to the spider.

I was wondering that too. If they have some instinct to guard a circular structure.

I made a note to myself to find out. The texture and color are similar to her own egg sacs.
