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!
About the Artist - DigiArt Diaries by Vicky B Fuller
I have loved photography since high school. When digital technology came out, could not wait to get a new camera. Once I did, there was no ending to the number of pictures I would take in one sitting. My Dad, as well as others, had always encouraged me to do something with my photos. I always just enjoyed them for myself. Then my Dad suddenly passed in April 2008. He is no longer here to encourage me, but I know he is watching over me, so I decided to launch my website for others to enjoy my images.
In November 2010, I started DigiArt Diaries (acronym of DAD) in dedication of him. My images improve day to day, and now I have watchers, fans and collectors from around the globe.
