Wow..such a great spotting! The way the appendages are held and the head patterns, together make up a fantastic pose!

Is it dead? It looks like it's dead. Still pretty though!

Dilan, congrats again on earning Spotting of the Day! Our top comment on Facebook has given this beauty the nickname of "Yoga Spider" which, I must admit, I'm kind of liking :) Thanks for this and so many other awesome photos.
