I  thought photographing Daddy Long-Legs would bore me to tears, but I'm glad I stuck with it.  I was able to get in real close and take some fantastic shots.  Found this guy in a bathroom under the sink.  This specimen looks to be a male, due to the large size of the pedipalps (the 2 smaller appendages in front of his eyes). Pedipalps are reproductive organs, and can be used as hands. Talk about multifunctional.  Keep this in mind when a spider asks to shake your hand, look him in the eyes, and politely decline.

Common Name Daddy Long-Legs
Order Araneida
Family Pholcidae
Genus/Species Pholcus phalangoides

Daddy Long-Legs closeup, his carapace is almost transparent.
