Black widow spider in the potted trees behind the bookstore, it has spun a thick web in a nook in the tree and seemed to have an aversion to the light. There was another, thinner spider in the web with it.

This is an adult female found under a damp slab of wood. Not sure about the tiny red spider but I think it might be a juvenile Steatoda.
