      It’s a first for me too. I was just lucky to see it on my mint and then notice the tiny red eggs. I’m glad my camera picked the eggs up so well. 🙂

  1. I haven’t seen one of those in so long. They loved my mom’s back porch when I was a kid. I don’t remember seeing eggs, but, I may not have known what I was even looking at!

      I think the eggs are a fun thing to know about. I never thought anything of it when I used to see them. The granddaddy long legs has always been apart of our out door norm to see. 🙂
