Hi the spider of your picture is a crab spider.

Yes, this is a Crab Spider (Thomisidae) in the genus Xysticus. Like most spiders they have venom but are unlikely to bite except in self defense and are not considered to be of medical significance. Everyone’s immune system is different though. Welcome to Spider ID. 🙂
