A pretty little juvenile black widow in our backyard at sunset.
My son definitely knows what his parents love—and don't love. Yesterday, from upstairs: 
"Mom, come look quick! Dad, you don't want to see this."
Both of us: "What kind of spider is it?"

Figured I'd reshare this photo of a mom to be for Mother's Day and #SpiderSunday! Hope everyone had a good weekend, moms and spider lovers especially. :-)

And another jumping spider for Spider Sunday, this time a gorgeous study in the little jumper's beauty, on both black and white, from the master of fine detail, +Seth Burgess. Just gorgeous!

Thanks for the share +Kimberly Hosey!  I'm not so sure about being a master of anything, but I do appreciate the kind comments :)

Our sky is pretty impressive. I have such a huge backlog of these I haven't even gotten to yet. "Hey, you're missing the sunset!" is a sure-fire way to get me or my son off our butts any evening.

Hey! I still have a blog! 
So things are getting ramped up again here at Arizona Writer and the Hosey-Wilson household, and we've got so many cool things to share -- trips and opportunities around Arizona and in the worlds of science and nature; photos, musings and more from our adventures; connections with the amazing ...

So my son tells me I'd better get back on Google+ because it's where the kids are. In response to that, because I'm damned lucky to have a kid who WANTS me on the same social network, in recognition of my niece's awesome cuteness and in slight yearning for when my own kid was a baby (sorry, kid); here's a quick shot of the two of them. Much better shots to come. Hope everyone's well!

Pretty sure this whole "Kill it with fire" thing has gotten out of hand. Humans really are idiotic sometimes. :-/
A man who set a gas pump on fire in Michigan says he was trying to kill a spider.

Figured Easter is a good a time as any to resurrect my G+ presence and observe #SpiderSunday ! Easter Spider says she hopes you have a very happy Easter, and maybe don't taste her eggs. :-)

#HappyEaster  from +Spider Sunday, curated by me when I'm not MIA as well as by +Lerato Majikfaerie.

Hope everyone's having a spidery Sunday! Check out the legs and abdomen on this beautiful orb weaver from +Ben Frewin. (Only in biological nerdery can you say "Check out those legs and abdomen!" without sounding creepy.)

These little guys are way smarter than web builders. They have great vision and will interact with anything that comes within range. Like little aggressive guard dogs. Point a pencil near them and they face it and lift their front legs "You wana piece of dis?"

Check out this awesome black and white shot of a cross spider from +Steven Spence! The orb weaver is gorgeous, as is his image, PLUS he offers some spidery poetry from Bill Watterson!

Hope you're having a super #SpiderSunday !

#SpiderSunday  (+Spider Sunday +Lerato Majikfaerie +Kimberly Hosey )
 
A Sunday post that lets me combine two of my favorite things: wit and nature. In this case, Bill Watterson ( Calvin and Hobbs ) provides the wit:

Like delicate lace,
So the threads intertwine,
Oh, gossamer web
Of wond'rous design!
Such beauty and grace
Wild nature produces   ...
Ughh, look at the spider
Suck out that bug's juices!

Below is a black and white portrait of the lovely little cross spider that I met yesterday while mowing the grass. Unfortunately, I had to break her web in order to get where I was going, but I made sure she was safe.

Also, I thought Black and White might be a bit less threatening for some of you than seeing her in full color. Sort of a "distancing" effect, because it looks like in an old book. my hope at least.

Have a great Sunday! 

P.S. the picture is large enough that you should be able to zoom in a bit. 

P.P.S. #spidersunday  , +Lerato Majikfaerie , +Kimberly Hosey
