I decided to feature it on my blog of course I linked to this original and there's a caption under the picture mentioning your name. picturebandit.wordpress.com/20…

If you still think it should go away, just drop a line and I will remove it. 

Sharing is Caring after all...

Normally, I am afraid of spiders, but by seeing how caring this spider is towards her children makes me less terrified.

Cool. :D 

I was wondering this since the Fishing Spider (Dolomedes) uses those same dimples to safely traverse over the water surface without getting wet.
