OMG! um, you know that's a poisonous black widow, right?
LOL- of course. I thought it was dead so I was taking pics- then I decided to put it in a little plastic box to throw away, when it jumped and started charging towards John Paul.Luckily I was wearing shoes so I could just stomp on it.***Shudder....***
I obsessively check the porch every morning now. Haven't seen another. Phew. Just tons of huge hairy wolf spiders. Blech!
