Black Widow

Latrodectus mactans


Very exciting for me, to spot a black widow hanging upside down in its web. I had never seen one. Less exciting, it had made its home on a porch at work. I would have to tell someone, and they would "take measures" ... but they didn't. Live and let live! Never saw it again, though.
