Day 129 - May 9, 2011 - Harvestman

There are over 6,400 species of harvestmen which together make up the Arachnida order Opiliones. They aren't spiders (which are in the order Araneae) but are cousins. I've always thought they were cool. Their eyes are on either side of a little turret on their heads — the little black blob in this picture.
