Spotted this while weeding. Got my camera and chased it up onto a fence and took some shots before it did a runner.

I'll be trying to catch one feeding if I can to show off the amazing crab like claws that are as seen on the front of this specimen. More closely related to scorpions these guys have two eyes on the top of their bodies and they shed their legs to escape which is unfortunate as they don't seem to grow them back like spiders.
This specimen was undamaged.

LOL, Pamelajean, do you mean the scene in The Thing with the upside down head that sprouted legs? It was a great movie that.

very good close up detail. here we refer to these type of spiders/arachnids as "daddy long legs"
