hi! Found this cool looking spider and was curious about it. Do you know which one it is? Is it harmful in any way? To people. To plants. Thanks.

Shamrock Orbweaver

Dear Spider Admirer
This is a very unusual color pattern for an Orbweaver in the genus
Araneus.  We believe it is a highly variable Shamrock Orbweaver, Araneus trifolium, which is pictured in a white form on BugGuide
