Researching this guy was a surprise. I found four spiders in the same woodpile. One was a classic black, large, bulbous and glossy female; another looked just like her, but smaller and with some stripes (male).

Then there was this guy, who ran away before I could flip him over. Turns out that this is also a male Black Widow. They are apparently often grey or brown like this.

The fourth was a wolf spider who zipped off before being photographed :)

Description

A small live Porpita porpita was found near Packery Channel, Padre Island. The diameter of the round float was about 12 mm, about half of the maximum diameter.

Porpita porpita is a condrophore, a colony of organisms in the phylum Cnidaria. It drifts on the surface of the sea. A close relative is Velella velella, which also has a disc with a sail. Physalia physalis is also colonial, but belongs to a different order, Siphonophorae.

The specimen was placed in a container for photos. The second photo shows the underside of the disc. All photos were taken with a cell phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 with a macro lens).

Several beached and mostly dried specimens of Blue Button were also observed. Also observed were some purple snails, Janthina globosa:
