this is the underbelly of the spider. The two white dots almost look like eyes. The topside is Brown with two dark spots.

Hi, this is one of the Spotted Orb-weavers (Neoscona), likely Hentz Orb-weaver, Neoscona crucifera which is very common this time of year. Not anything to worry over, they’re unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance. They prey on some less desirable things and help to keep the insect population in check. 🙂
