Hey daddy-o what’s up?

Just hanging out enjoying the flowers in the garden.

Daddy Long Legs belong to a family of spiders Pholcidae, commonly known as cellar spiders, daddy long-legs spider, granddaddy long-legs spider, carpenter spider, daddy long-legger, vibrating spider and skull spider, is a family of araneomorph spiders first described by Ludwig Carl Christian Koch in 1850. It contains over 1800 species divided in 94 genera.”

Given the huge number of species might explain why we see them running about everywhere in the yard and often in the house all the time.

Mosquito Netting

While out on a hike we ran across a couple of trees in which a spider had put up between 3-7 of these wonderful mosquito nets and each was loaded with bugs. We never were able to see the owner of these webs but it sure looks like they will be eating well for the rest of the summer. Any yes, the mosquitos were bad out there that day.
