Golden Orb spider? I have another photo of it from the other side which is quite different and facing it's prey. It looks a bit like a face/guitar in black and yellow

Sorry, I made a mistake – this is the underside with ‘face’. The other side is a big round yellow body with faint stripes across, and 4 shorter stripes downwards, to about half way. I can send a phots of this if you tell me how to add it to these comments.
Hi, it can be too hard to see which photo you’re submitting in the tiny thumbnail photos, so nothing for you to apologize for. We’ve received some really wrong photos that way! To submit a second photo, post it like the first with a comment that it is the same spider – dorsal. I move the photo I’m submitting to a file by itself to avoid clicking on the wrong one. Even if you do submit the same one, don’t worry, it happens a lot.
