Daddy Longlegs may be common but there are many different kinds; their bodies display all sorts of patterns and color that unless looked at closely cannot easily be seen. It’s sometimes hard to tell the front from the back, their eyes are on top of their body and very small. They pose photographic challenges. It’s hard to get a detailed shot of the body and keep all the legs in the frame; it’s almost impossible to get a shot where all the legs are either in focus or not moving. All that said, these creatures can be quite interesting and they are harmless. They are also one of the oldest of insects. They are not actually spiders; they have their own family. More interesting, they don’t move great distances, they tend to find a place they like and do their hunting in a small area around it.
