So if this is a spider:
is this an etiolated spider?
Well, you have to admit that it is very leggy!
To give you some idea of scale, the leaf on which this spider is walking is a Strawberry one, so the spider's body must be only 2 or 3 millimetres across, but its legs are about 20 times that long!
Just for good measure, here's another shot of the same spider seen above.
Eeek, they're all over the place at the moment, some really huge ones too.ReplyDelete
Looks just like what we call a Daddy Longlegs (the harvestman) which is technically not a spider but an animal. But when it comes to "eek" factor, they are all the same to me ;)ReplyDelete
Lots of spiders about at the moment isn't there!ReplyDelete
Lots of spiders mean a bad winter....old wives tale.ReplyDelete
More power to the spiders on the web, helping to keep the fly population down, nice pics.ReplyDelete
Love the pics, was thinking of blogging about spiders, you beat me to it! I seem to have lots on the inside of my car.ReplyDelete
Great photos but Margaret is right the harvestman isn't spider but it isn't a man either.ReplyDelete
