I just love this one - it's making me teary, dang it. She just looks soooo happy - like she's smiling, and see there, how all four of her eyes are shining? Like she's just about to ask if you'd like to cuddle him :) (awwwww, he's got her mandibles!)

I'm printin' this out and takin' it to my next Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life class - COPIES! I'll make copies so everybody can put one on their fridge :D !

There was very little compassion for spiders at this last outing...

Am I wrong or does this look more than a bit like Boris Karloff?
