What kind of spider is this? Is it venomous? Dangerous? It has made its home on the siding next to our front door.

She’s a Furrow Orbweaver, Larinioides patagiatus. Venomous, yes. Dangerous, no. She’s a predator of flying insects. Orbweavers make strong webs with tconcentric circles and straight lines. The spiderweb emoji is an orb web.
