Brown Recluse (Violin Spider)

Loxosceles reclusa


While photographing this spider I tried to get a better shot of the front but was unable to. After studying the picture, I'm very glad. Brown recluse, or Violin spiders for the violin shaped coloration marks on the head, are considered THE deadliest spider in the southern US and are known to be aggressive.
