Large Spider

This spider is about 3 to 4 inches from the end of one leg to the end of the other.

 

According to SpiderIdentification.org it is probably a harmless orb weaver likely in the genus Argiope. It seems to be a large family of garden spiders found on the mainland. This one just happens to be on the larger side.
