Cool, really like the second shot, would love to see that one with the spider on a mirror.
Not to put to fine a point on it but all spider are venomous or is this Australian it can lay a serious hurt on a human?
And finally how cool is a gal that gets happy when gifted a spider, that never worked for me!
