My new favorite blog, Adirondack Almanack, has a great entry about daddy-longlegs. I knew they weren't actually spiders, but I had believed that they had truly poisonous venom that they were incapable of delivering to us. According to Ellen Rathbone, a biologist and environmental educator in the Adirondacks, those are urban legends. I've always liked daddy-longlegs. Such fascinating little guys.
