Don't Arrive Unannounced by Cozytailmom Don't Arrive Unannounced by Cozytailmom
We have a guard at the front door. This black widow is large. I'm not going to offer my hand for a size comparison just take my word. Nickel sized body and then the legs...

What a lovely spider! ^^ I've never seen one in the wild, sadly, but I hope to do so someday :) (just not in my shoe or something ^^; )

Thanks! I live in the deep woods so we see them about once or twice a year. I enjoy seeing them, but I also enjoy knowing that we are not infested.

You're welcome! :) Oh nice! :D Yeah, I wouldn't be too keen either if they were overrunning the area or something ^^;

What a good lookin mama!  Shes a beautiful girl!  You get street cred for getting so close.  Steve Irwin would be proud.

Thanks! Fortunately, they are not aggressive at all. Not that I would suggest handling one. I guess the non-aggression comes with the confidence of being toxic. I didn't get too close, btw. zoom...

Yea I've encountered them as well and they are rather mellow.  I typically allow spiders to live in and around my home.  However, I do kill these and any recluse that I found.  Every now and then I'll handle them with care of course to show them to my kids.  I've taught them to tell me when they see one and to not get too close.
