Comments & ID Thoughts

So I came across this little fella in my shed today. As soon as I saw it my gut reaction was Blk Widdow (as I’m sure everyone does). The position of the longer front legs and the shiniest black body made me think it obviously. Spread out like this I would guess about 1/2”-3/4” long. It’s abdomen was about maybe 1/8” long. The under side I didn’t see the hour glass but looked a little tanner. I will try to put him in a glass jar and get better pictures of It
