This is a writing spider. My brother has a lot of them around his house in Randolph County, NC. They will violently shake their web whe disturbed.

 
Large Spider
We have one of these in our raspberry plants. Can you imagine trying to pick the berries and having him shake his web. I think he is going to jump right off the web. We are in Michigan and he has been here 3 years.

 
Garden Spider
I live in NH I found one of these in my yard. Is this anything to worry about? Is it harmful at all. I am not a spider fan at all and this one creeps me out!!
