Anyone know what sort if #insect this is? And most important: does it sting or bite? :-D

I don't really know, but it looks like the mother of all insects... Biting and non-biting ones? :D

Didn't reverse Google Photo search help? 

I will check my Scientists circle to see if I have anyone on insects.

Cool
 
Cat-Faced Orb Weaver ( Araneus gemmoides or Araneus gemma )
"These large, beautiful spiders make their webs near lights, closed spaces, and on the sides of buildings. They can also be found under wood, overhangs, or guarded places such as animal burrows. They come in varying colors but are easily identified by the two horn-shaped growths on their relatively large abdomen. Their color changes from summer to winter.

The female will die within days of laying a single egg sac with hundreds of eggs. Egg sacs can survive overwinter, and the emerging spiderlings will eat their brothers and sisters. The babies ride strands of silk in warm air currents, able to transport them to locations miles away.

-- from Wikipedia

This particular young girl was having a bit of lunch on her web just above my back patio door. She and her siblings (I've counted ten so far) are stationed in the rafters of my backyard deck, and take quite a good haul of insects that are attracted by the porch lights. I enjoy having them as guests and am always fascinated by their graceful ballets when spinning their webs. :)

Introduction
Gentoo Linux Developer, Long time Programmer (started in primary school with QBasic ;)), Geek, Otaku,.. ;)
Also got quite into Photography these days (partly due to G+ and all those awesome photos I see every day).

If you like the photos feel free to save, share them, but don't just copy them and put them in your profile without giving credit. Thanks

Unless otherwise stated my photos are under a CC-BY-NC-SA license:  http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/deed.en (In the unlikely case someone really wants to use one for commercial purposes feel free to contact me ^^)

If you are interested in any of the above subjects let me know so I can add you to my circles. Also since I post most things public anyway (so that they are searchable,..) I might remove people who post nothing/little themselves since I'm very close to the maximum number of people I can circle)

Went there for a nice cool glass of Guinness once. Really nice decoration and good service. The price was ok. Unfortunately I did not have time to try the (vegetarian) food, but it smelled and looked very nice. War einmal auf ein kühles Glas Guinness dort. Nette Dekoration und Service. Auch der Preis war ok. Leider hatte ich keine Zeit das (vegetarische) Essen zu kosten, aber es hat sehr gut gerochen und ausgeschaut.
