Thank you GreenBugs

They go by a couple of names such as the Silver-backed Argiope or the Florida Argiope (Argiope florida). It's a juvenile. They tend to go hog wild when they construct their webs with the extra stabilimentum. That explains the Argiope common name, writing spiders, they write lots of 'z' and 'x' into their webs. Nice picture.
