My Black Widow
Click the photos for larger versions.
As requested, here are a few photos of the black widow I caught in central California. Sorry for the fuzziness of two of the photos, but I tried to pick a couple that showed its size. After reading a bunch of good comments, I’m pretty sure she was pregnant. Guess I’m glad I got rid of her before she laid eggs.

All photos were taken with a Canon Powershot S3 IS. The newest version of this camera is the Canon Powershot SX40 HS.
