Sophie Laurenzi's spider artwork

Back in February, Sophie Laurenzi, a high school student in Memphis, TN, wrote me an email to ask whether she could recreate one of my photographs for an art project. She sent me a photo of the finished piece a few days ago; I love it!

Here's the original photo, which I snapped while in Rangiroa, French Polynesia in 2005:

Great work, Sophie! (and, the expression is priceless)
