Widow Skimmer (female)

By GlenD
Managed a quick walk this morning at the edge of Old Furnace state park (wasn't going in and getting lost again) caught this female widow skimmer resting. Lots of stuff around, seems this area is loaded with snakes as I've seen 4 garter snakes in the last two days just they have seen me too and scooted off before I can sneak up on them.

Thanks for the veiwings on the shroom and thanks for stopping by
