MUMMY LONG LEGS

Click on photo to enlarge.

The mother (quite literally) of "Daddy Long-Legs spiders" just ster-rolled in through the back door this morning.

SOooo... I took (yet another) shot of it (her) ambling down the hall. Note the small pedipalps (or one you can see anway (- at the front of the head)) and the much better view of her eyes in this shot.

This individual is about 20x the size of the first "DLLS" I took a shot of in the kitchen, and I'd say at least double the size of the male under the bathroom sink.

HYOWGE.

Until I blew up your photo I had never realised how hairy they were... positively furry... You seem to have a lot of spiders in your house!

Until I started taking these photo's a month or so ago Jane, nor did I!
Until Spring arrives, I do seem to be taking alot of photographs of spiders.
I do find them quite interesting though.
Their eyes especially.
They are almost ALIEN!
