Spider

I've always thought these were long legged spiders. Google tell me that this is actually a daddy longlegs, and she is carrying her eggs. I also learnt that they are spiders, but are more closely related to a scorpion. Good job, as this is for the November word list, and today's word is spider/scorpion
Wonderful macro shot. Not a particularly pretty bug, but you've captured it wonderfully.

A very interesting capture, although I wouldn't want it too close to me!

Amazing - which end is the head?

@maggiemae the round end. Those are the eggs which she’s carrying in her jaw

@yorkshirekiwi Good grief - who would do this but a spider!

This is an awesome shot of the spider. She is so maternal - love seeing how other creatures care for their young.
