Daddy Longlegs

This is the first daddy-longlegs I’ve seen this year.


Daddy-long-legs aren’t spiders. They’re arachnids and are more closely related to scorpions.


 They live in moist dark places and eat mostly decomposing vegetable and and animal matter.

I took this picture two or three years ago. The orange “balls” are mites.
