I really didn't know what this spider-like creature was when Kay's mum pointed it out at the back door. The extra long 2nd pair of legs and undivided body apparently mark it out as one of the 'huntsmen' - arachnids but not spiders - no venom, no silk. Hard to photograph for this blog sized view as the legs were so long the body is just that dot in the middle, but the close-up shows the weird 'lobster claw' appendages at the front end. Truly something different.

The legs look so fragile Brian. Makes me wonder how they survive. Lovely clear photos.
