She is the true name is Argiope aurantia, I’m sure she will be fine down in Florida :3

Yes, black and yellow Argiope garden spider. The can survive down to freezing, bit their nature is after making and hiding egg sacs, they don’t live much longer. Doubt you get that cold in Ocala. May be around for a while yet.
