There's a large spider right outside my window. Would you be able to ID it (picture attached)?
Should I be concerned or leave it alone?

This is a beneficial garden spider called an orb weaver.
You should leave it be and enjoy watching it from your window as it catches and feeds on other pest insects outdoors.
It is not going to bother you.


Thank you, Christine!
