It's just a daddy long leg, Mina, why its legs are so light you wouldn't even feel him if he was climbing on you right now! LOL

Mina are these native to NI. I had one of these on my shoulder which my hubby kindly removed before telling me what it was. I did the spider dance for quite a few minutes, yuk yuk!!

Miria said...

Mina, you made me smile once more! I don't know if you're familiar with Harry Potter's saga but if the spider's name is Aragog you should expect a big family coming lol! hugs, Miria

I suck these little suckers up the vaccume everyday in my work..shame really as the flys hate them and wont come in that room while one is there....but the web they weave...goes for miles..AND..the daddy long legs is the most poisonous spider in the world..BUT..it would take hundreds to kill you cause they are so small.You shouls come to NZ..check out the 'Avondale' spider..now thats a spider.

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Mina you are one very brave woman, not only would I have got close enough to measure it, I wouldnt have been able to turn the camera on with fear it would hear me and eat me. I have no problem with mice, rats, snakes, lizards etc in fact I has pet mice but if its a spider....you are going to see me doing one of 2 things. Freezing the one spot with fear and screaming at my hubby or found speeding down the hall like road runner screaming for my husband. I couldnt even look at your photo!! Ewwww. Lee xx

Vicky said...

Awwww I love spiders & always pick them up to set them free outside. I usually give 'em a name as well, usually the same name....Boris pmsl.....yes I know weird old me lol. My youngest loves all sorts of bugs & I used to help him catch them when he was younger lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

What a perfect Halloween Card embellishment. Just pop some lush ribbon and a colored witch on the picture and you have a Halloween Card ready to go!!!!

First you need to understand that I don't particularly like spiders. Next you need to know that I swear I live in the spider capital of the world. Till I moved here I'd never seen so many or so many different kinds! I've got so many my studio I swear I should start naming them. I kill 'em and kill 'em and kill 'em, the buggers are never ending!! But the biggest one I've ever seen was in a screened room in Florida. I'm not kidding the BODY of the thing was almost the size of my fist...you don't even want to know how long the legs were. I'll just say that when I stretched out my hand, fingers spread, I couldn't cover it! I scooped him into a tub and hubby used him for fish bait!
