ForestDragon suggested I look into the Bugguide and it looks a little like an Orchard Orbweaver. I'm pretty weak on my arachnids. Can anybody help?

Thank you ForestDragon. I took a little better picture, today. Thanks for your expert help!

Hi Jim! I can tell you that this is a spider from Genus Leucauge, a Long-jawed Orbweaver. There are two different species found in Florida. Without more detailed images, I don't feel comfortable labeling a species to this. :-) They are really pretty spiders!
