Creature Comforts

As a child I often played with these daddy long legs, also know as harvestmen. I would let them crawl up my arm and sometimes they were content to sit there for a while. These arachnids are not spiders, and there is no truth to the myth that they have venomous poison. While sitting on my font porch one summer afternoon, I caught these two side by side in a seeming embrace. Perhaps all of Nature's creatures need a little cuddle time when they think no one is watching.
