The Black Widower

by chris cunningham

Caught this little bugger building a web inside the front door. Considering the Black Widow normally eats her mate, this little Widower is lucky. The male is small and their hour glass is yellowish. Google search: “Black Widow is considered the most venomous spider in North America. Only the female Black Widow is venomous; males and juveniles are harmless…” Ok, at least he’s ok, but crap, if he’s got a little lady friend she can’t be too far away. Man, venom is one scary ass word. I’m sleeping with one eye open tonight.
