Can you help me ID this spider? I've searched online some, and he looks similar to the garden spider, but I thought I'd ask for others' opinions.

I'd estimate he is about 1-1.5 inches. I'm in central MA. Let me know if you need more information. Thanks!

If you mean Araneus diadematus; that certainly seems correct.
