Daddy Long Legs

July 23, 2020

I’m hoping today will be a good day! We had a good, steady rain yesterday evening which was sorely needed. It hadn’t rained here in over two weeks. Well, we did get a little rain about a week ago, but it didn’t amount to anything. What you might consider a tease! It rained – slow and steady – for a few hours yesterday evening. All the animals and plants are happy!

It looks like it’s going to be a gray day, a good day to work on the computer. Which I think I need to take care of some computer stuff, and get my photos off my camera so I can work on them. I might even go out and get some yard work done, or work in my gardens. With the intense summer heat, they have been a little neglected.

So, anyway…

Hope you enjoy!

“Look daddy
can’t you see
it’s a daddy long leg
nibbling on me!”
~ HCMorris ~

And yes, it was trying to bite me, but it couldn’t. It was originally on my thumb, but as I snapped the picture, it jumped down onto my hand. It felt like an annoying little something trying to bite me!

So, here are some facts about “daddy long legs”…

  • “daddy long legs” is just a common name for harvestmen, which are arachnids, but not true spiders.
  • Spiders sport six to eight eyes, but harvestmen rely on a single pair
  • Although harvestmen have what are considered “fangs,” they do not have “fangs” for the purpose of injecting venom like a true spider does.
  • Harvestmen also lack the ability to spin silk and weave webs. Instead, they are ambush predators.
