A Harvestman via Two Lenses

I found this individual on a wrist-thick rotting branch in my pile of fungus and slime mould dedicated wood. Most species would have jumped off fairly soon afterwards but this one stayed on board, immobile while I walked (about 1 minute) to the table I use as an outdoor "studio". The sky was blue but the colour shown here is of a purple-blue, glazed urn in the background.

I used sunlight for the exposures. The lens for the low magnification was my usual Olympus 4/3 50mm macro, 1/60 at f11 and ISO 320 .

The high magnification was via the Laowa x2.5 to x5 25mm at x2.5 and 1/160 second at f5.6, ISO 800.

The stereos are crosseye (frames uncropped). The 3D effect in the second one is weak.

The harvestman had some detritus clinging to its mouthparts.

Harold

In this case, just on the camera via an adapter (AI to E in this case) and daylight. It is just another manual lens.

That should have come with a spider alert

PS. I think they were nice shots but it's hard to tell whilst I'm hiding behind the settee...

Thanks. You're safer out in the open, as they avoid the light.

If it has more than four legs it's a spider...or a monster....

It's not normal having so many legs. Yuk

It's a predatory arachnid, no better no worse, both harmless.
