Little Miss Venom

When I took this photo, I did not realize that it was a black widow that hadn't matured yet. I just figured it was a spider ready to lay her eggs. They don't actually turn black until after they mate--amazing. Other shots I have of this show all of the punture wounds she created injecting her venom into it, but this was the clearest shot of them all, unfortunately. The Walking Stick fell right into her trap, which happened to be under the arm of the lawn chair we have out back of the office. You can tell she is ready to inject it again as the venom is oozing from her fangs. Creepy!
