Not sure what type of spider this is, saw it on the side of my house this morning, and had to get the macro tubes out for a close up :)

Pretty sure that it's a Cross Orbweaver (Araneus diadematus) female.  Great work with the extension tubes!

Thanks for the comment, I'll update the description, that looks like the right spider type from the google search I did :) And I really like those extension tubes, definitely a cheaper way to go in starting out with macro photography :)
