I agree with jgorneau. I'm pretty sure that we have the same spotting.

Larinioides patagiatus? http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/103...
They can tell it is a male because of the pedipalps, which are the huge boxing glove-like things in front of the spider's face.

Nice spot! You can tell it's a male by the enlarged palps - it looks like he is wearing boxing gloves!
