Harvestmen are such weird creatures - in a class of their own! (Opiliones are an order of arachnids colloquially known as harvestmen, harvesters, or daddy longlegs. As of April 2017, over 6,650 species of harvestmen have been discovered worldwide, although the total number of extant species may exceed 10,000.) Smile You've caught these two brilliantly!

As children, we used to call Crane Flies , daddy long legs, Karen, is this a regional thing do you think?
A great image, BTW.Wink

A pretty long-legged pair !
Mike might be interested in THIS .
"The common name "daddy long-legs" is also the common name for several other arthropod groups, including harvestmen, which are arachnids but not spiders, and crane flies."

Obviously one for the "leg" men amongst us.
