    That's a good shot, Duncan...nice dof and compo. [Over here, a daddylonglegs is a spider. This looks to be something that flies]

    Daddy Longlegs aren't spiders. They have only 6 legs. Spiders have 8. They more belong to the mosquito family, I think.

    nice shot duncan, i was going to agree with antartican and say a daddy long legs is more of a spider looking guy, but figured i should check it first... apparently it's a pretty broad term, very confusing actually>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daddy_longlegs

    while referred to as daddy long legs, it is also known as a Crane Fly (Tipulidae)
