fam Araneidae; genus Argiope
Not sure which exact species. Young "Writing Spider" hiding behind its circular, zig-zag stabilimentum, or "web decoration".
The habitat for THIS one was the botanical gardens of Medellín, Colombia.
I saw another one, but who's zig-zag stabilimentum was in one straight line. I assume it's a different species, but I'm curious why one chooses a circle while the other chooses a single row? Thanks to S Frazier for identification help!
