Nursery Web Spider?

I snapped this photo of what I believe is a nursery web spider out on my deck in July. Until I happened upon your site, I was terrified and repulsed by spiders. Since I have been reading more about them, I have a better understanding of our eight legged friends. Of course, you won’t see me cuddling up to one anytime soon. But they make fascinating photo subjects.
