Lizard vs Spider

Andrew and I were swimming in the back yard and were watching a lizard scurry back and forth on the side of the pool. Then, this happened.

      The widow definitely won. Her prize? Dinner for a week.

    Who got who? Nature in action in your own back yard.

      The widow got the lizard. It was crazy.

    Ew, nature. Way to go spider.

    We’ve noticed a pretty severe black widow bloom around the sides of our home. I wonder if they like warmer weather?

      Yeh, it was pretty crazy. When i saw this spider I thought it was a black widow at first, but due to it’s alternating colored legs, I decided to look it up. Turns out it’s a brown widow. They are slightly less venomous than the black widow (according to wikipedia), but that didn’t stop it from pwning this lizard. I have started noticing some egg sacs around the outside of the house since then though. Might have to do something about that.
