Echeveria multicaulis (with friend)

I was sorting through the photo archives and came upon this photo of Echeveria multicaulis ("Copper Roses") and noticed its little friend on one of the leaves. These of course are good spiders, unlike the bad spiders called "red spider mites", which aren't spiders at all...which is all very confusing to the beginner.
All of which reminds me of the time when we had a walk-in plant nursery and we put up a fake spider for Halloween. Of course the first customer to come to the greenhouse that day was arachnophobic. Never saw her again!
