Spider presentation

A big thank you goes out to the Friends of the Kingsland Library for inviting me to be a guest speaker at their February meeting today. My presentation was on -- what else? -- "Spiders of Central Texas." I enjoyed my time with everyone! (Thanks, James, for capturing the true essence of me in the photo below. Ho ho ho.)

Robert L. brought a female black widow (and two egg sacs) to share at the meeting.

I have never seen a black widow here. Are they common?

Well, they're not abundant, if that's what you mean. But we do have black widows in Texas. They like dark corners and out of the way places to construct their webs (they're in the cobweb family of spiders).
