Daddy Long Legs on Muscadine Leaf

I visited my neighbor's grape vines to check on the galls. They looked the same, but while poking my head under the leaves, I came face to face with this creature. Eeeeekkkk!

 

 

Most people think these creatures are spiders, but they aren't. If you look closely, you will see that spiders have two body parts, while daddy-long-legs have only one. When they walk, daddy-long-legs use their second pair of legs to feel their way, just like some insects use their antennae. There are numerous species of daddy-long-legs. These animals cannot bite.
