Spiderweb or Pest?

Asked September 24, 2019, 1:23 PM EDT

Can you tell from these photos whether the web on this quince is a "healthy" spiderweb or the web of some kind of damaging pest? Thank you.

This is the web of a type of spider, so no worries.
There are many different types of webs and spiders are awesome beneficial insects to have in the garden.
