Hi, welcome to SpiderID. 🙂 You found an Orbweaver in the genus Araneus. There are a few similar looking to this and I can’t make out enough detail to say which exact species with certainty. (A. gemmoides? A. gemma?)

Some of them get that way when they get old, I don’t know why. Looking at this one again I think I do recognize it after all. 🙂 Comparing placement of the banding on the legs to the ones I was initially considering I instead think this actually is a Cross Orbweaver (Araneus diadematus).
