Caption

Black widow spider (Latrodectus hesperus) uses her rear legs to wrap fly that has flown into her web using silk from her spinnerettes. Females of this species have leg spans of approximately 4 cm and are distinguished by the bright red hourglass pattern on the underside of the abdomen. While probably the most feared spider, black widows are not aggressive and their bites are rarely fatal to humans.
