Well-Nigh Wordless Wenesday: Harvestman

I grew up with daddy long legs (aka, harvestmen) in Colorado.  They were pretty small, but there was something about the way they moved and their spindly little bodies that I found fascinating and completely non-threatening.  I hardly ever see them in Arizona, so the first harvestmen I’d seen in years were the giant ones I saw at BugShot last year:

These things were enormous!  Their size took them straight out of the “cute, non-threatening” realm straight into the “slightly scary, intimidating” category.  Still, I took a lot of photos of them, so apparently I still find harvestmen fascinating, even the massive ones from Missouri.  :)
