The yellow triangle shape on the underside of the thorax shows this is Nephila plumipes, not edulis (they also tend to have a plumper, less elongated abdomen). I'd confirm it, but I'm not allowed to do spiders!

Thanks Jackie. As an Admin I'd be delighted to make you a Moderator of whatever you care to name!
