Here is the black widow bee born of conversation at the dinner table last night. We were discussing killer bees that had swarmed two people and their horses. I had not read anything about it, but my husband had. He said the one of the horses ended up dying. So sad. Some how the conversation switched to dangerous insects in general. I mentioned that it would a formidable insect if combined as in The Avatar – The Last Airbender. A flying spider – yuck! Of course I said I had to draw it. My daughter’s friend was over for a sleepover, and she said that I freaked her out with the combo. Hope she didn’t have any bad dreams.
