I occasionally encounter snakes but what really worries me are brown recluse spiders. I think I saw one in my iris the other day. I looked for a long time to see if it had the violin marking and couldn't make up my mind and was afraid too observe any longer. I understand they do not make webs but capture their prey by jumping.
