This black widow chose a planter on our porch as the place to hide her eggsack. She wouldn't move away from it, no matter how hard or how far I moved the planter. She was determined to protect her babies.

After I took some pictures, I killed her. I took no joy in it…but I have babies to protect, too.

Black widows are pretty scary; we have them here, too. You certainly have to do what you have to do to protect your own. Nice shot.
