Hi, this is a Cross Orb-weaver (Araneidae) Araneus diadematus. 🙂

This is a rather common species with a distinctive pattern on the abdomen. The pattern is quite faded on yours, but still recognizable. 🙂

Also I deleted your duplicate image and intended to crop this one to match it but I forgot I’m utilizing a mobile device at the moment and the cropping function I use within the site doesn’t function properly on it. I’ll try to remember to crop it later when I’m on a desktop pc.

Got it, thanks!
