Comments & ID Thoughts

This is between my kitchen window and screen. It has been here about a week. And barely moves. But then in about 24 hours the two possible egg sacs showed up. This is in South Carolina. The spider looks very much like a brown widow but no hour glass. And the egg sacs have no spikes. The web is so tiny. Barely visible.
