Young black widow spider.  I have no idea whether this is a male or female spider.  At first I thought it might be a male, but after a little research, I think it’s a young female.  If anyone knows, feel free to comment.  For the record, because I’d never seen a black widow spider before, I shot this one through the window.  Call me “chicken.”  I admit it!!
