Reflections of Moth

Shield bug or something. Tick? Idk… (lol)

Some kind of Insect. :) Not sure what.

Can anyone positively identify this spider? I have a small family of them living on my porch steps - and they are causing quite a carnage with the ant population. :) However, they are also in a place where people walk by with bare legs - children and pets. Are they dangerous? Should I catch and move them?

Is this what I think it is? Is this a male black widow? And if so, is it overly dangerous? Can I let it live on my porch in reach of dogs and children?

Too amazing not to re blog… :)
