What is it?
See the little heart shape?
Did you guess right?
I am arachnophobic, but this spider had such beautiful markings, I had to photograph it!
It wasn't that big, the body was about 3/4 of an inch, and it's not poisonous.
PS. It's a Cross Spider (Araneus diadematus), common in Europe and North America. The basic colour varies between different species, from light yellow to brown/red to dark/grey. The thing they all have in common is their cross-symbol located at their back. The cross is actually formed by white dots which are closely attached and shaped into this perfect cross. (thanks for identifying it squirrel)
