My, Daddy, What Long Legs You Have!

For reasons that are beyond me, it’s apparently daddy long legs season here in the sticks. Suddenly they’re everywhere.

Although I don’t really like them, I don’t hate them. I just don’t want to have to deal with them every time I turn around.

This is what I’m used to seeing. A tiny body and long legs, but overall still fairly small. (Yep, this one’s missing a front leg.)

I was a bit freaked out when I saw this one!

Overall MUCH larger. And that body! That body isn’t like what I think of as a daddy long legs. I think of their bodies as little dots – really nothing more than something to hold the legs together.

I did not like him Sam-I-Am!

Now get a load of THIS one!

Obviously not a spider at all, but I am struck by how insect-like this shadow is when the sun strikes my lamp in the afternoons. I couldn’t help but share it.

Your turn: anything creeping you out lately?

  • Thanks for stopping by my blog, your right not everything that is planned turn out that way, but I’m please with the progress. As for creeping me out, well it’s been raining a lot here and we have the gaint toads that love to jump out at you at night when you need to walk the dog, really creepy, slimy yuck!
