So with that said ... I live here in florida. Also i live right on a protected wetland the butts up with my back yard. I get a lot of frogs and cool things to get shots of so i decided to go out at night time for a chance to see something cool! So i slap on my macro lens and grab a flashlight. I open my patio door and hear a faint crackle of the web of a black widow. A sound I know well but didnt think thats what it could be! With fear of it I quickly closed the door and shined my light outside seeing nothing. Memories of Arizona black widows race through my head. (I once klled over 30 in a car i used to own... gave the car away) I open the door again with no sounds so I think its just my imagination. After all its 12am! So i walk outside right into a tight string of a web! snap! The next thing I know is the feeling of a LARGE spider running across my head. Ahh I must have looked like pee wee hearman on meth for about 10 seconds. So I ran in the patio and somewhere along the way my shirt was already off and Im checking my whole body for spiders! lol like 10 min before I calmed down! So me being me I had to go back out after about 20 min and see if I see anything. CLOTHED and spider free I head back out with the flashlight to see a broken spider web floating in the air and here is what was at the top of it! . . . . . . . . . . . around 2 inches long! see the fang???? sheesh NOW i know it is not a black widow but they have these BROWN widows here too. Many different color scheems too. I didnt ever see the bottom so I am not positive on this. I do know black widows WELL and their webs / eggs. It was a widow web and there was an egg sac close by wich resembles the spikey black widow sac. lol so im not really looking for C&C on this because i was so shaken up takeing it. But concidering it came out ok so if you like ... . I spent a good while online for spider identification and it seems to be a brown widow! most are shiny and no hair but Florida State University claims some browns can have hairs! I know there are some smart peeps on here. If anyone know for sure could you let me know?? Thanks for letting me share my HEEBEE JEEBEEYS story with ya'll! For the outdoor photographers .. ALWAYS LOOK WHERE YOU KNEEL DOWN AND POKE AROUND! YOU NEVER KNOW!
