@tsarstepan,
I didn't try to take a picture, but the other night I mowed deep into the midnight hours.

and ate several large webs that came into my view too fast to do much but put an arm up and duck. without crashing the mower, of course.

didn't eat any spiders though.

they prolly saw me coming with the headlights and all...

@DrewDad,
That's almost as bad as the apocalypse DD. If I saw that, I'd freak out and might never go outdoors again. Shocked

@dlowan,
Ours are red bellied with the red appearing in a distinctive hourglass figure. We call them Black Widows. They're of the same genus.

@dlowan,
have seen some red backs around. They generally hide very well.
