Male Nothern Black Widow

June 15, 2013  •  1 Comment

I found this guy attached to the outside of the back door this morning.  I knew it was a Black Widow, but it looks a bit different than I've seen in the past.  I thought maybe a younger one.  Upon research, it is actually a Male Northern Black Widow.  It's very exciting for me because I have never seen or photographed a male widow, nor a Northern Black Widow.  Double bonus for me.  :)

Not sure what this display was about.  Perhaps a warning??

Awesome photos! Thanks for sharing Nathanael. I've never seen a male black widow before. And I'd rather see it in a photo than in my house!!
