It’s genus Argiope, I’m not sure of the species. The yellow projections are odd. We’ll keep working on it, thank you for posting!

Hi. I see one of the Lobata group here (Lobed Argiope) this one is unusual for US natives called silver Argiope, another the Florida Argiope.
Perhaps an accidental additive from Mexico and south.
Hi, back. what I come up with ia Argiope Lobata-Hellinic version. Likely a color morph.
Not native to the US. Have to see what their range is. Hmm, seems no observations in the Americas at all,,here is the closest blog I found:
