Black widows are actually pretty common here, in this part of Arizona. I’ve found more than my share of them. This is the fourth one I’ve found living right next to an outside doorway. They don’t seem to be aggressive toward people, only defensive when necessary. But, that’s my own observation.
This is the black widow spider that has taken up residence right next to the front door to my house. She’ll be evicted very soon.
I just added this and the other matching spider photo to the album, “Scenes from my City”. I expected it would showcase the two new photos with a new post and it didn’t. So, I reblogged both of them to do that. Be sure to follow the link (or go to album under the photography button) and view the other photos in the album too. Thanks.
