I have a picture of a spider which I would like to identify in case it bites or is otherwise dangerous.

Orbweaver

Orbweaver

Dear Ilze,
This is a harmless Orbweaver in the family Araneidae.  Large Orbweavers might bite, but they are not aggressive, and the bite will cause nothing more than local swelling and tenderness.
