Yesterday morning, before I headed to work, Treebeard and I took a walk around the yard. We like to keep up with what's going on out there, you know. As we passed by one of the red cedars growing on the lower end of the property Treebeard spotted something neither of us had observed before - a molting daddy longlegs.
While we watched this critter wriggling out of its out-grown skin, I looked around and spotted a couple more in various states of molt. I was surprised to see so many so close together.
It was a fun find. You just never know what you're going to see when you take the time to look.
