    Macro photo of a harvestman

    Hi all,

    I posted this photo of a harvestman on my blog last night—an arachnid that isn’t a spider for a change! Mind you, I did get some more really nice pics of spiders recently...they will go up soon.

    Cheers,
    EC

    Oh lord. That is incredibly creepy. I like them more as little balls with long legs...

    Nice photo though!

    never really saw them except somehow everyone growing VFTs in California had them caught in a VFT. Some how it appeared that they would plop down their bodies into the trap and would be just legs sticking out of the traps....

    LOL! I have a photo of exactly that! I posted it on a couple of carnivorous plant forums (including this one) and people that kept flytraps outside could identify the type of critter by the legs sticking out!
