    Yes, I took those photos. I'm pretty sure that this is a female, albeit immature. I believe those stripes fade, and often disappear, as she reaches maturity.

    Way back, packing to move from Colorado, I was working in the garage, felt a tickle, and there was a black widow walking across the back of my hand. I just watched and she went on. I did squash her after she was on the bench.

    Arizona - lots of black widows and brow recluse. Where I am now, only brown recluse but there are a couple in the bathroom every night. They're not good swimmers, especially if they're squished. Poorly designed, I guess.
