American House Spider

I stepped out the front door this morning and nearly walked face first into this beauty - an American House Spider (Parasteatoda tepidariorum). They're not especially dangerous to humans (though they may startle you quite a bit if you walk face first into them...)Actually they're really rather beneficial as they eat other pests like mosquitoes and roaches.
