Skuld is sulking

My male black widow has found a cozy place. He’s snuggled down in a bed of moss, and he’s hard to spot if you don’t know what you’re looking for. I had to stick my camera lens way down into his hidey-hole, so even if you’re unfamiliar with Latrodectus, I suspect you’ll have no trouble finding him.

    Come mating time, he’s dead meat. Or whatever you call an enzyme-liquidized Happy Meal.

    Is it just me or is this quite a trippy / pyschedelic photo? Swirly tunnel full of green stripes and stars.. Echoes of the Dr Who intros..

    Red, well, brownish red / reddish brown frond ressembles an octopoid alien albiet with minimal tentacles to me too..

    Oh and guessing that black, vaguely peanut shape – could be a comet, could be a pair of merging black holes at the centre / bottom is the spider here, yes?

    Skuld is dead centre, if you look below the central darkness you can see legs, and there are the gleams of multiple eyes peering out too.
