Latrodectus mactans - female

Latrodectus mactans - Female
Huntsville, Madison County, Alabama, USA
August 8, 2008
I was moving my hose reel in the back yard (located in northeast Huntsville, AL) and this beauty was under the lid. She let me snap a few picture before finally lowering herself to the shady parts of the hose reel. She's still there helping reduce the bugs in my yard.
