Nature in Action

Daddy Long Leg and Walking Stick

I was lucky enough to get this shot of a Daddy Long Leg killing a Walking Stick Bug. While it isn’t exactly pleasant, it’s about as nature as you can get.

*chokes* All I can say is...praise the Lord it wasn't a stinkbug.

Signed with horror,


P.S. I suppose, if I liked spiders, I'd say this was a great shot...but I don't, so I can't really offer any comments XD
*mutters* guys and bugs *blecht*

Technically, these aren't considered spiders. They don't have eight eyes nor do they spin webs. Nevertheless, I'm not overly fond of them unless it means getting an interesting picture. :D

You see, that's what the majority of people say...but I say that anything with thread-like legs that looks LIKE a spider is a spider. It's my way of categorizing all horrors into one category :P but *whispers* the picture does capture an interesting aspect.
