I was pulling weeds in my herb garden today and pulled back a big cluster from the rock border and voila! Look what I found. Don't know if she's pregnant or if they are just this big and round naturally. The shiny black skin and the brilliant red telltale sign on the belly are actually pretty impressive. And no, I didn't kill her! I think this looks better enlarged.

      I found once on apiece of furniture I bought at a yard sale, nearly had a heart attack !!! After I recovered, I capture it in a jar..... You are lucky you found yours outside where you can just leave her alone ! Great shot !!!
