That's an odd looking spider. Were you using a tripod or was that handheld?

It is a Spiny orb-weaver, Gasteracantha cancriformis.



I took this one using a tripod. Lens is the Tamron 70-300 in Macro setting.

It's very nice, and not the easiest one to get, even with a tripod. I noticed that your shutter speed was extremely slow, so figured you couldn't handhold a 300mm lens and get that quality (well, at least I can't).
