Hi, see above image for ID. 🙂

You’re welcome. Most of your (fuzzy) brown fat-bodied ones are likely Neoscona crucifera, Hentz Orb-weavers. Super common.

This is also common and widespread mostly throughout eastern North America and down into Mexico. Being a little smaller and less conspicuous they’re just more likely to go unnoticed. They have several color morphs, this one is particularly beautiful.
