I was stopped at a gas station when I spotted this beautiful female Black Widow. I took out my camera and started snapping shots. She ran at me a few times, even got her web on my camera! lol She caused a lot of attention. When I was finished taking photos, a man walked over and stepped on her!

Nice image, the shadow of the poison spider really puts this image over the top.

This is absolutely enchanting! I believe the shadow is truely what draws me in and brings this photo together! This was one of the most well-spent two minutes of my life that I never want to get back :-)

I remember these well from living in Hanford California while I was growing up. The climate was perfect for these to grow in the corners of our garage!

Thanks Randy, I was shocked when the man stepped on her. He said she didn't need to populate the earth! I love black widows too, they are so beautiful.

more than a black widow spider in my favourites...heheh. Take care. ;)
