Computer Room Spider 5-1-13 3

A spider, probably a Cellar Spider Pholcus phalangioides, (AKA "Daddy Long-legs") that showed up in my computer room (a converted bedroom…) in Albany, CA. Taken by a Nikon F4s with a Micro-Nikkor 55mm ƒ 3.5 AI lens on Fujicolor Superia 800.

The body of this guy/gal is all of .25 inches (¼ inch, 6.35mm) long…

Note that some of the dust visible may be on the negative, not the web…
