Spider identification question
Hi there - Wondering if you can identify this for me. I keep a boat on the Mississippi River in Hastings, and found the spider when we got to our destination in Wabasha last weekend. Thank you!

It is difficult to tell the size of the spider but I would say it looks like a black and yellow garden spider. They are not harmful and prey on insects. They can vary somewhat in coloration and pattern. Here is a link with more info. https://bygl.osu.edu/node/549
Oh sure, I have seen those before! Thanks for the help!
Don't you agree that they are rather cute? (grinning!)
