It's beautiful but I have no idea what kind it is. I like spiders and snakes. I certainly don't want either crawling on me but both are welcome in my yard.

Kylie, looks like a Southern Black Widow. Now I won't be able to sleep because I saw too many spider pictures!

They start young, don't they. Hope you also smashed the egg sacks. You should blow up that last pix and hang it out on Halloween!
