You could add other details (leg position, size of abdomen compared to the rest of the body) Check out this field guide for more info:

Yes I believe Argiope sp. ( orb-weaver spider) owing to the paired-legs posture, shape and color pattern of the legs and the presence of the web "stabilimentum" (white structure in front of the forelegs in the photo).

Could be an Argiope sp., but picture is too blurry to get closer.
