Thought I would share a pic or 2.Went to move my Blue Widow plant,I rotate them every couple days or so,as I grabbed the bucket to spin it I felt something on my hand moving.I thought it was an ant and continued to set the bucket how I wanted it then started to knock the ant off my hand when I realised it wasn't an ant but a Black Widow spider:holysheep: ,well needless to say,I FREAKED:eek: .It seems that critters are getting fond of my Blue Widow,just last week I had to kill a Pigmy Rattlesnake that was a few feet from her as I went to check on her.Had my little dog not went on alert I could have had a bad day that day also.So if you grow in buckets like I am,keep in mind to check things out before you grab the buckets.Especially if they haven't been moved in a while,never know what you'll find.I didn't kill the spider,after a bunch of thrashing and slinging myself around:doh: . I managed to get it off me onto the ground,then onto a very long stick,and relocated to a spot I don't have anything growing.Mother Nature,sometimes love her,sometimes hate her,BUT ALWAYS RESPECT HER. I'm not sure if this is the same spider or not but once again it's on my BW.
