Daddy long legs...?

The other day we had a long-legged visitor to our pepper plant. He was moving so quickly all over it that it was really tricky to get a good photo but I managed it eventually. Looking at some spider i.d. guides online the only spider with long legs I can find is the daddy long legs but I'm not sure that he looks exactly the same as them.

Does anyone know if he is definitely a daddy long legs or not?


  1. Well he or she certainly had long legs but it's hard to tell. You've done well to get a photo though when it was moving quickly

  2. Hmmm, it does look like a daddy long legs. But I can't be positive.

  3. Great photo. Will be at library on Monday so will look for book suggestion. Wouldbyou mind if I linked to your blog?

  4. Yes, well the fact that he had long legs and none of the other ones in the online guides seem to is what lead me to that conclusion.

    projectforty - that would be great if you could have a look and of course you can link to my blog!

  5. Yep, thats what it is. Good photo - they move fast.
