Argiope florida, the silver-backed Argiope, is a possibility. Please do post your other photos and put in the comments sections that they are the same individual spider as photo 48027. If you have Google Photos you can make them into a plain collage and put them as a single new posting. It tends to crop the photos laterally, rotation of the photos before creating the collage can help. If you prefer, please post them individually with comments. An image recognition program indicated that the genus could be Argiope, but it could be wrong.
