love the orange chelicerae, and blue eyes

Photo use questions...
I've read about the Creative Commons License, but I wanted to make sure I understood it right...and also personally ask your permission... I saw this photo and absolutely loved it at first sight. I was wondering if I could use it as my desktop background? And also, my little sister hates spiders and I was wondering if I could email her this photo to terrorize her thoughts? Something only a big sister would do. lol

 
You are welcome
to use the image in any way you wish...

 
Thank you...
and kudos on your photo!

Moved from Wolf Spiders.

Clarification.
The spider's fangs are not very visible in this image. The orange color is on the spider's jaws, properly called "chelicerae," to which the fangs are attached.

 
Thanks
for the clarification

circular pattern
What is the circular reflection on the large eyes from? It make it look like the spider has huge pupils.

 
And
The lower eyes look like a nose. What a monster!

 
Circular pattern
It must be an artifact of the on camera flash

 
Yes I'll bet it was the flash,
looks pretty cool, though. Nice shot.
