Actually I found this Daddy Longlegs on a brown almost dead leaf and carried it to this one by a stick. The spider was exploring the leaf but never left the top of it. I was on a class trip and trying to keep balance on a slippery log worried about the spider than my own footing. I don't like spiders everyone was wondering what all the chaos was about. Its funny what we will attempt do to get a good shot. Sorry I didn't look at all these spider shots especially not the tarantulas shivvvers.
