I started out to take a photo of a daddy long-legs on the shady stone beside the trail at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. Just one.
Soon it was dancing with its shadow--
That one was headed to the gathering of far more than I could count! "Adults are frequently seen in huge gatherings, standing with legs interlaced." *
I pray their shoes are velcro. Not anxious to get in there to tie shoes.
Thankful I was off-duty, I didn't even blurt that daddy long-legs aren't really spiders.
What if the plenary session reconvenes?

**This seems to be a prevalent urban legend, although it was new to me.
The seeker will have to wait for the next post.
