A different kind of spider from the orb weavers I've been seeing around the garage doors. Note the elongated abdomen and very long legs. Shot the night before last.

Looks like what we call a "cellar spider" around here. I believe that I read somewhere that they also prey on other spiders. Good for them! Wink

Thanks.

Until I started going out at night, I had no idea there were so many spiders hanging around the garages.

At first I thought there were only orb weavers, but that's clearly not the case.

Who knows what I'll see if I go out tonight.

Well, no one's found Jimmy Hoffa yet Think However, if you like moths, night time is perfect for them. Smile

Not apparently around here. I've seen very few moths since I started going out.

I found that reddish-brown stag beetle in broad daylight, around 5:00pm.

After that, I didn't feel like I needed to go out tonight, and instead worked on the tablet mount for my good tripod, which is now done.
