I was wondering why the Daddy Longlegs was hanging around my bathroom and I found out why after I did some macro shots. Daddy is really an expectant mother carrying around a bunch of eggs.
Daddy Longlegs spiders don't bother me. From what I've read they are poisonous but their mouths are too small to bite a human. Of course, I don't believe everything I read so I do err on the side of caution and use a long lens.
Some people hate all insects and bugs but I don't kill Daddy Longlegs because I prefer them over what they kill and eat. It's natural pest control.
