Spider

Argiope argentata

Description:

Habitat:

Gumbo Limbo trees, palm trees, sand and scrub. There was a foul odor in the area where this spider was found.

Notes:

Seen from above, side, below, and behind. I have no idea what the ID is for this one. First time I've seen it in Florida I think.

Thank you emiliedwolf, and EricEllison!

What tipped me off was the banding pattern on the legs and the visible stabilimentum (white zig zagging structure) that reminded me of the slightly more common Yellow garden spider. Great picture by the way!
