Saw this when I went to take out the trash tonight. Looks like a brown widow to me, but the "hourglass" seems a little different. Also, it was not in a "typical" widow place; it was basically in the open.

Kids play in the area, so I'm trying to determine if I have to do some "selective photographic model attrition."

Thanks in advance.

Yep, pretty sure that's what it is. See you are in LA CA. I am in Long Beach and have a lot of these around. Mostly in open areas too (on fences mostly). Cool shot.
