    Glad yall like the shots!

    Yes, my Flickr site and Website are pretty much where I store my photos, for now, but actually I am working on making my own Photo Database System where others can contribute too. It's a lot of work though!

    I will try to get even closer shots of the widow in the next day or so.

    Soooo DOPE. I love Latrodectus spp. I've been raising and studying them like mad this past year and a half. Currently I own 60, they are amazing; thanks for sharing!
     
  10. These are great pictures. Are they only in Florida?

    Yes, this species is only found in Florida.
     
  12. Thanks. Are they abundant in the local habitat? I have tons of black widows in my area.
