Another Octoped Resident...Now Deceased

Well, Silas the Orb Weaver moved out. I think he got pissed on Saturday when I was mowing and stirring up a bunch of dust. But on that same day, I found a new arachnid; this one I was much less pleased to find. This was the fifth Black Widow I have found since we bought the house, this one the smallest. Fortunately, none have been found inside the house. When I found this specimen Saturday morning it was already dead; I think I unwittingly killed it the previous day when spraying for ants; but I would have wittingly killed it had I known it was there. Nonetheless, here she is, still hanging by a thread, looking as menacing as ever.
