You're doing great everyday! Great shot of St. Andrew's Cross (commonly known as signature spider, scientific name is Argiope xxxxxx <-- subspecies I forgot). What your photo is missing is the "signature" of the spider on the web (a very typical of this species, puts a white zigzag mark on the web when done), though I think it is there (I can see a glimpse on left bottom corner). Do you have a shot including the "signature" too?

Yes they belong to same family, Argiope. But different subspecies. Your other photo is most probably of Argiope versicolor. Don't know the original's subspecies.
