Hi, yes it is a well camouflaged Argiope trifasciata, silver banded orbweaver. This is the best photo I’ve seen of how their abdominal color pattern can be beneficial in foliage. The legs resemble stems and petioles too. Hello to Plymouth! I graduated from Plymouth State and here I am using skills I learned there.
