Strange looking spider, Carol: rather like V 2 which shows it has done a belly flop, legs hanging free.

A very strange specimen.
What is it suspended upon? Is it a piece of pipe/a bar? How large is it?

Thanks for showing it Smile

He looks like I feel after a day with my grandchildren!
I've actually got an image of a Harvestman spider - at least that's what I was told it was
on a country walk led by Rangers.
So good to meet one again even a very chilled out one like yours!!!

It has great camouflage, one would think it was a stick. Strangely, it has a back like a beetle, and the legs of a spider....maybe it's a beeder.

They are also known as Daddy long legs & Opiliones.I came to know this recently . As i was aiming to take one of them thinking a long legged spider but my Son in law gave the new ID.
