Good morning! How about story to start today off right. From friends Lulu Miller at RadioLab and Darren Hoyt:

We found something else – a turtle, exhausted and barely able to stay afloat any longer, supporting a frog on its back while a spider clung to the frog’s head to avoid drowning. … Did the tortoise rock the heavy frog cargo from his back? No. Did the frog eat the spider? No. … Did the spider attack the frog out of fear, biting its slimy steed in desperation or in hopes of a meal? No, it did not. All anybody did was cling to each other.

Darren’s got the story of the picture and its first life here.
