Saw a tiny (~1/8" body length) black spider with an enlarged abdomen spinning a web under my bathroom counter this morning, worried it might be a black widow but couldn't get a close look at its belly.

Finally twigged to reaching down with my phone camera with the zoom at max and: it's not black, it's variegated brown! Trick of the light, and up close it's obviously a little orb weaver doing its thing. Get those bugs, little buddy!
