The Beast

This is Black Widow spider that fell from the top of my door and landed in a bowl of oatmeal I was carrying.

I know I'm going to have nightmares tonight!!!

The whole crazy story is on my 365 pic for the day. :0)
This is amazing!! what was a black widow spider doing at your house!! i would be freaking out for sure!! Did he like the oatmeal?

@ellimae You can read the crazy story on my other pic for the day. :0)
November 21st, 2012  
Oh my goodness! The oatmeal would have been out the door, never mind the camera LOL
November 21st, 2012  
Ohhhhhhhh...ackkkkkkkkkk...cudos for photographing it!
November 21st, 2012  
wow, right there with you for the nightmares!
November 21st, 2012  
YIKES, I would be SCREAMING LIKE CRAZY. If this happened to me, it would be nightmares for quite awhile.
November 21st, 2012  
Oh my gosh! Did u rearrange it so we could see the red hour glass or is this how it landed ? Wow! I would have freaked out!
November 21st, 2012  
@espyetta NO!!!!!!!! I didn't touch it. I think it was still alive. They can play dead.
November 21st, 2012  
Cool capture of a creepy spider! I imagine I would have cursed and I do not know if I would not have thrown it very far!

Pam

November 21st, 2012  
I can't believe that you had the composure to take a picture! I would have dropped that oatmeal and screamed for sure. I'm going to have nightmares now ;)
November 21st, 2012  
Wow - that is a crazy story! awesome capture...little miss muffet. Fav!
November 21st, 2012  
i hear they glow in the dark.
November 21st, 2012  
@chard LOL! Now I'll be seeing glowing black widows in my nightmares! :0)
November 21st, 2012  
Omg! Still alive maybe? Tis freaks me out!
November 21st, 2012  
Holy Moly what if......Oh never mind!!! Nice shot she probably didn't eat much.
November 21st, 2012  
I probably would have shoved the bowl on my deck and hoped some bird came along and consumed that spider.
November 21st, 2012  
Oatmeal has the same effect on me! Great shot and story!
November 21st, 2012  
Oh wow, at least it went into the oatmeal, and not on you. Take some Tylenol PM
November 21st, 2012  
Definitely not something you want to happen every day. He looks very relaxed.
November 21st, 2012  
Very cool. You have inspired me. I know we probably have some lurking in the garage. I guess I need to go out and find one now.
November 21st, 2012  
Good gracious - yikes - surprise!! Love the shot, but I can imagine how you felt at the immediate moment. How long did it take to calm down and find the camera???
November 21st, 2012  
@milaniet It really hit me after I took pics and thought about the what ifs! It bothered me for awhile!
November 21st, 2012  
Cool
November 21st, 2012  
How lucky that you didn't have it drop in your hair; you would have brushed at it with your hand and then just imagine! Oh, it doesn't bear thinking about...
November 21st, 2012  
That is possibly the most awful thing I've seen on here - euurgh .....
November 21st, 2012  
OMG, you have just used up one of your lives, well shot though, true 365er to the end
November 21st, 2012  
Curds and whey, not, but close
November 21st, 2012  
Wow...what a photo opportunity. Great detail of that Black Widow.
November 21st, 2012  
ick. spiders! but it's a great shot!
November 21st, 2012  
Nasty breakfast, but makes for an interesting photo.
November 21st, 2012  
He had a soft landing. I bet you will be careful where you take your bowl of oatmeal in future.
November 21st, 2012  
OMG I would have sh__ __ my drawers!!!!! Somebody in MA found one in their grapes from Stop and Shop grocery. Eeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkk
I can't believe you took a shot of it. YOu must be a very calm person, then i hope you killed it with vigor!!!

Amy
I love spider pictures but this one freaked me out...wow. Where do you live? I hope there are none of those here.
November 21st, 2012  
OMG! That's frightening!
November 21st, 2012  
Yuch! Did it ever come 'back' to life? Glad it didn't randomly land on you and all is well!
November 22nd, 2012  
@amyvanross I live in Tennessee. :0)
November 22nd, 2012  
@lynnb No, it's gone.
November 22nd, 2012  
Yikes! AND to think I was going to eat hot rice or hot oatmeal for tomorrow's breakfast. I will pass on these now. How did you stay so calm to get a good picture of this posionous spider! I would have freaked out.
November 22nd, 2012  
@daisy Before the 365, I wouldn't have been able to take a pic like this. After it was over, it took me awhile to calm down. I was jumpy! :0)
November 22nd, 2012  
Ewwww! I would have freaked out.
