Please explain "redback" to us yanks.

The red-back spider, also known as the Australian black widow, is a species of highly venomous spider

Slim Newton song, released in June 1972
there's a red-back on the toilet seat (external link)

There was a red-back on the toilet seat
When I was there last night,
I didn't see him in the dark,
But boy! I felt his b***!
I jumped high up into the air,
And when I hit the ground,
That crafty red-back spider
Wasn't nowhere to be found.
I rushed in to the missus,
Told her just where I'd been bit,
She grabbed the cut throat razor blade,
And I nearly took a fit.
I said, "Just forget what's on your mind,
And call a doctor please,
'Cause I've got a feeling that your cure
Is worse than the disease."

There was a red-back on the toilet seat
When I was there last night,
I didn't see him in the dark,
But boy! I felt his b***!
And now I'm here in hospital,
A sad and sorry plight,
And I curse that red-back spider
On the toilet seat last night.
I can't lay down, I can't sit up,
And I don't know what to do,
And all the nurses think it's funny,
But that's not my point of view.
I tell you it's embarrassing,
And that's to say the least
That I'm to sick to eat a b***,
While that spider had a feast!

And when I get back home again,
I tell you what I'll do,
I'll make that red-back suffer
For the pain I'm going through.
I've had so many needles
That I'm looking like a sieve,
And I promise you that spider
Hasn't very long to live!
There was a red-back on the toilet seat
When I was there last night,
I didn't see him in the dark,
But boy! I felt his b***!
And now I'm here in hospital,
A sad and sorry plight,
And I curse that red-back spider
On the toilet seat last night.

Haha... I instantly thought of the black widow when I heard it, but the red mark is on the belly. I had a scary encounter with one when I lived in Georgia.

Crab spider and lunch !

He/she made things very difficult for me by dining underneath the flower head, although I shouldn't complain because the hoverfly had a much harder time than I did.

Great shot. Funny timing, I was just walking around outside looking for a fly for my jumper.

Crab Spider hiding, and some type of orb weaver, resembles an Orchard Orb, but color isn't right.

Me getting a good picture with a cell phone is like the blind squirrel finding an acorn. But sometimes it happens.
