Default It's an orb weaving spider.

At least that's what some one on the boardwalk said, It sounds cool so that's what it is.
this one was in the trees and was the only shot I could get.



Cheers

Nice photo. I think it may be a Golden Silk Spider.

Nice color and detail in the shot. Looks like he is looking straight down at you.
