Dear Spider Watchers,
This is some species of Orbweaver.  Orbweavers like all spiders are venomous, however they are not considered to be a threat.  The effects of the bite of an Orbweaver are mild and generally last less than a few hours.

    Beautiful spider! And not really dangerous to humans, despite its impressive size and aposematic-looking colours.
