Opilones -- Daddy long legs
While painting in the woods today at the site of the old Donaldson barn, I was about to dip my brush when I noticed that I had a visitor. I had other paint, so I worked around the daddy long legs. It stayed there quite awhile on one color. It must have been the chemical scent and composition. Glad to have it on board.
The daddy long legs is quite an inspiration. Consider the history in film and music.
