Hi, it looks like Leucauge venusta, an Orchard Orbweaver. There is another common one, the Mabel Orchard Orbweaver, that you may have seen before. Yours has more yellow, while the other species has orange dots and green legs. It has venom for killing prey, but it isn’t dangerous to humans. Avoid touching her too roughly or too long to avoid being bitten. It really is that easy!
