what’s this spider?
Found this guy hanging out on our siding. Never seen one like this in our area. We live in Upper Michigan .

Hi Mark,
It appears you have a photo of a Marbled Orb Weaver, Araneus marmoreus. These are shy spiders that hide in a retreat, only emerging when prey has been snagged in their web. It is found throughout the United States, north to Alaska.

    Are these spiders poisonous? We live in Delta junction Alaska and have only seen them this summer.
