Hi, these are Verrucosa arenata. One common name is: triangle orbweaver. The lower onelooks like a normal female, I don’t know if the other is male or younger or something. They are harmless to people. You would really have to make an effort to get bitten. They make strong circular webs in open spaces and any critter that eats lots of insects is a good thing.
