This big guy was running across my kitchen. I scooped him up in a cup. It's been raining pretty hard all day so I assume that's why he's in the house, but this is just an orb weaver right? Nothing to worry about?

Orb weaving spider, looks like an Araneus sp., but I have never seen one with this particular pattern on its abdomen. BTW, it always is better to start a new thread rather than piggy-backing on an existing one.
