What type of spider was that on the blackeyed susan, it was the very first picture at the top of the guide? I had three very large ones. I was told they were brown recluse, because of the violin pattern on the back. The only difference between your picture and the ones I saw was the color, they were lighter, more of a beige with dark brown violin on the back. They were at least 3 to 4 inches in size. Please help I can't seem to find them on the internet.

Everything that I have read about the brown recluse indicates that they are very small. I don't think the one on the sunflower is a recluse, but I would suggest contacting your local university for their entomology department.

You can usually reach them online and I have found that everyone is so good at helping.

I was leaving my apartment to go to the market and the sun was hitting this spider web just right to be able to notice it outside of my neighbors apartment. I just had to go back inside and fetch my camera!

It took a couple dozen shots because of the way the sun was shining and some obstacles in the way so I am really, really pleased to have been able to capture these two that turned out of Mr. or Ms. Spider waiting for dinner ;-)

Could be worn to a formal Thanksgiving dinner, informal Christmas brunch or just hanging out in the garden with friends, waiting for the food to arrive! Notice the amazing style, details and fit, just perfect for enjoying the season!

I have an illness that puts me through a lot of pain on a daily basis, so I use my gardening and pictures as therapy. I couldn't believe it when I saw this granddaddy longlegs on my favorite flowers. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

A "fishing spider" I came across yesterday. It was quite large, it is on a 4 inch pole for size reference. Talk about nightmares!

We were supposed to be rushing off to town for the day's errands and meetings when my husband willingly pointed out this spider hanging out in the bushes near our home and garden. He was so beautiful that I couldn't help but take time out of our busy schedule to photograph him.

I went out on my patio to look around and found this beautiful web complete with the spider who created it. I was surprised how well the web reflected in this flash photo. I love catching moments like this!

I took this photo while trying out my new camera last spring. I wanted to see how good the images come out close up.

So I was literally only the width of the camera and maybe another inch away.

I found this spider wrapping up a rather large, recently captured beetle. I think it will be eating well for a while.

This is what awaited me when I opened the curtains one morning. The screen is blurring the picture, but you can see the size of the spider (about the size of my hand) compared to our friendly magpie who was sitting about a foot from the window.

This is a colorful photo I took of a spider that just caught a fly. I don't know how the spider let me get so close to take this picture, and I don't know how I was lucky enough to get it at this perfect moment.

I guess timing is everything (for me and the spider.. not so much for the fly though).

The female black widow spider is easily recognizable by the hourglass marking on her abdomen. The males are often lighter in color and exhibit a series of red spots on their abdomen rather than the hourglass shape. This page contains photos of black widow spiders.
