Comments & ID Thoughts

Looking on the head of this Hawaiian Garden Spider, it seems to have a graphical design depicting the shape of a spider with a human face at the bottom, or is it my imagination?

Totally your imagination 😉 I see it too and now I can’t stop seeing it on this spider! It looks like an old man wearing a huge wig.
