What Is He Looking For?

What Is He Looking For?

I watched this Daddy Longlegs thru my lens--still don't know what he was looking for--but he dug into the spent flower, then climbed inside--sort of...

Leiobunun---Eastern Daddy-long-legs

I have never done a collage-- This one is not quite successful-- but it is time for me to move to other images

Maybe he's after hoverflies and bees and that sort of unsuspecting creature. Don't forget he is a spider!

I like your collage. If it is your first it is excellent!

He can obviously see something you can't and it's very interesting. A super montage - really cute. I like daddy long legs because they're so spindley. Smile

Four individually good macro shots but portrayed as a montage
we get a chance to see the daddy-long-legs and the flower buds
with those bursts of purple in all their different facets.
Very well done.

Beautifully captured set of images, Jenn, also known as a harvestman (daddy long legs in the UK are normally crane flies), but technically not a spider (same Class, different Order).

I like the collage, and the way it shows the progression of his quest....obviously there was a tasty specimen to be found.

I do not think he was looking for anything, he was scratching his armpit, but I dunno which one.
