Back in primary school, the kids used to call these “daddy long legs”.
Like everyone else, I’ve had the opportunity to see one of these, but never two in such a compromising pose.
The other day watching a action movie, one character asks another, “So which are you scared of–snakes or spiders? Everyone is scared of one or the other.”
The CIA lady says: “Spiders” and later admits, she lied.
The Army Ranger lady says: “I’m not scared of anything.”
Two different philosophies on defeating the enemy–do you overcome them with strength, courage, and bravado or perhaps you mislead them with deceit and cunning or with both approaches.
In any case, the other saying that this photo reminds me of from childhood is “bees do it, birds do it” and now I know that spiders do it too. 🙂
