An Argiope garden spider, probably Argiope aurantia.
Species Argiope aurantia – Black and Yellow Argiope – BugGuide.Net

https://bugguide.net/node/view/1945309 It looks like Leucauge argyra, an Orchard Orbweaver. The legs are blackish green instead of black and yellow. It’s nice to see your face in the thumbnail pic Dan.

I stand corrected. (hadn’t had my coffee)
That pic is 10 years old.
