Hi, yes she was an orbweaver. It looks like she caught lots of insects. Thank you for trying to ID her, it takes practice, I’m still trying to figure out the orbweavers. Yours looks like Neoscona domiciliorum. They have bright red upper legs as their main distinguishing characteristic. The species name refers to their preference for building webs on human domiciles, like yours.
