This is the second black widow spider I’ve found on the front porch recently. Both were dead when I found them. Hubby thinks the black wasps that also hang out around the porch are preying on the spiders and that maybe they dropped this one. Great. A wasp may fly over me, lose its grip, dumping something poisonous and not-quite-dead on my head.
It’s always something . . .
Here are some of the photographs that I considered submitting as my homework for my third photography class.

View the two photos I submitted for the Class 3 homework assignment.
Lots of wasps around. No reason to be worried about these.
For the first photo, I was up close and personal (only inches away), using my 40mm lens. I moved very slowly, in hopes of not disturbing the wasps. There were lots of clouds, resulting in the white background. Or it may be overexposed.

The second photo was taken on a different day: fewer clouds, bluer sky, with my telephoto lens, 55mm-300mm.
