..at the very least.
Sure, many find black widows to be less than adorable, but after many, many encounters with them in the wild, and in my garage, I have found them to be quite intriguing. They avoid human contact as much as they reasonable can. I could tell you many tales of the widows that run from me while I try to get close enough for a clear photo.
Apparently, they are also good for reducing the cicada population. These pics were taken last summer during our cicada mini-plague.
