This image was capture in the Balsam Lake Area of Ontario. I found her while I was looking for a log to create a prop for my portrait work. This is a female Black Widow Spider. I am fairly terrified but this was an incredible sight to see. She was quite a bit bigger than I had expected.
Much to my surprise not only did I find her but just as I sat down to photographer her, her egg sac opened before me. As you can see the babies starting to come out. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience.
