And now for a moment with nature

Anybody out there know what kind of spider this is and if it is at all poisonous? It sure does look menacing and it was the biggest spider I have seen around here (about 3.5 inches across). I just happened to have my 'dica' with me and this picture came out pretty good.

It looks like a Golden orb spider, Nephila clavata. They are all over the country. Very common.

Looks like you're right. wikipedia has a little thing on it...looks kind of like it but thinner.
