I’d just watered the container plants when I noticed several Daddy Longlegs running for cover from the dripping leaves. I didn’t mean to nearly drown them. In fact, I really never noticed how many were hanging out in the flowers on the front porch until I really studied them closely. There were a half-dozen meandering around, climbing from flower to flower or just hanging out on the side of the container.
Because the rays of sun were softly illuminating the foliage, I decided to get my camera and see how difficult it would be to focus on these little guys, also known as harvestmen, an order of arachnids. I played with different settings and F-stops until I got a few images I liked. Most of the photos resulted in the delete button, however, but it was a fun experiment. From now on I’ll be more careful when watering since I know these small creatures are likely eating the small bothersome insects that plague our gardens.
“Capturing images, words and horses.” how did you get those words there?
It was in the initial set up for t he blog. If you go to General Settings, it’s the tagline. Hope that helps!
Thank you so much!
