Default Unsettling Brood

Outside my bedroom window. Was freaked out enough I couldn't get a good image of mom, still imagine I feel em crawlin on me. Interestingly when I was close in tryin to get a sharp pic of mom, a robber fly buzzed in and started snoopin around the nest, the widow come out of her hole fast as lightning and liked to give me a heart attack. Couldn't get settled enough to get a good pic after that. If I'd had more intestinal fortitude i'd have waited to see if the robber fly would give her a go (as he perched himself on the wall about a foot below), but all I could think of was those babies getting up into my attic. Robber fly was still sittin watchin an hour later when I got back from town with spider spray.

We have a zillion black widows around our house and now I see why! Wow, that's a lot of babies!
