Oo err, if you squint, it looks like the spider is huge and sitting on a head!
Superb capture, such long legs and sooo many.
Excellent close up, well done.

Fantastic detail, & yes, it does look like the spider is sitting on someones head.
I don't mind spiders, but this one is rather gruesome, but I think that's because you have got so much detail & colour there.

Thanks everyone! Your c&c's are always appreciated.
Jacqui: I do have one more shot of this fascinating creature (not a spider really!!). They only have two eyes, and they don't have spinerets, so they can't spin webs. Also if you look closely they only have one body part - whereas spiders have two!! Fossils of Harvestman have been found in Cornwall, and they are largely unchanged since then! Smile
