A few nice web cleaner images I found:
She had been hanging upside down from the middle of a web stretched right across the top of a cardboard box that I was about to reach into. Here she has retreated to a corner of the box, but you can still see that lovely red hourglass on her abdomen.
I lived in Southern California for 13 years and never saw a black widow. I was in my final week there, in the process of moving out, when I encountered this one. I had left this cardboard box, containing cleaning supplies (for a final cleaning once the house was empty) outside on the back porch.
It was recorded at A Clean Well-Lighted Place for Books (which sadly closed)
An MP3 currently (August 2007) is at
but I’m not sure for how long.
Curse you, spider web!
Tuesday cleans my window.
