Huge garden spider takes a swing at GoPro

Rumble / Unreal AnimalsThis spider decided to build a HUGE web outside my window! I figured I'd let him stay and get a cool video, but I get a bit too close at the end and she takes a swing at the GoPro! I looked it up and think its a Araneus diadematus (Cross Orbweaver).

    I have spiders like the one depicted in this video, I also looked it up on the internet and came up with the same conclusion, do you by any chance live in Michigan? The reason I ask is that's where I encountered mine, in Flint, Michigan. They are harmless except for people who are arachnophobic (sic), they can make someone hurt themselves, lol. Thank's for sharing. BTW, I just looked up the spelling in my google dictionary, it's the correct spelling. Thank's again.
