Araneus diadematus cross orb weaver they are not dangerous

ForeverPieSP

Hello!
I’m pretty much a novice, so I had to do some googling. It didn’t take long for me to find the probable identity of this spider. I think it’s safe to bet this is a Cross Orb Weaver, also known as a European Garden Spider, or Araneus diadematus. If you are wondering, the bite can cause swelling, pain, muscle cramps, and nausea, but is generally not dangerous. Thanks for posting!
