Well, there are two reasons why we posted so quickly.

1. The title of the thread definitely hooked me in.
2. Everyone loves to hate spiders.

Maybe its a new species. First person to get a name of the species with pics and description gets as much karma as I can give.

Genius is probably right, it's a St. Andrews (haha, my name) Cross Spider.

Wikipedia wrote:

A. aetherea are known as St Andrews Cross spiders, for its habit of resting in its web with its legs outstretched in the shape of an X, the traditional shape of the cross of St. Andrew.

I'm pretty sure it's going to be from the Argiope genus, a little because of this:

Wiki wrote:

These are well distributed throughout the world, and most countries in temperate or warmer climates have one or more species, which look similar.
If I'm not mistaken, Florida matches the climate description.

The picture on wiki kind of looks like your picture, just slightly less silverish. It could be a totally new species, but still part of the the genus.

Edit: Cowami hit the jackpot. Before I found that page. I was about to post it too.
