I found this juvenile widow on a dead rabbit years ago. It is a great reminder of spring being in the air! I once had an unhealthy fear of spiders until I got into the hobby of bone cleaning. Such a strange hobby invited strange critters and I had to grow accustomed to our eight legged friends hanging out. After a while of this, I started watching them closely and couldn’t help but fall in love with them.
This spider built a web on a dead rabbit. This was smart; it had food wandering right into its home! A young spider needs a great source of food so it doesn’t become food itself, right?
