12 March 2012 – Eastern Fence Lizards and Black Widow Spiders

12 March 2012 Botany Bill FaunaSites around refuge

Today I did not do much botanizing. Instead I just drove around to see what I could find. Along side South Road near the BGE Powerline Right-of-way I spotted a lizard, which I believe is an Eastern Fence Lizard.

In the cleared area near the Old Village Corner, I spotted a cool looking spider walking across some exposed sandy soil. It is a Northern Black Widow Spider (Latrodectus variolus), possibly a male.
