A little nature at my workplace

Found this little lady who spun her web well above my head at my workplace. Had to get a ladder to get close. Also had to get a bit bendy even to get this, and my body doesn't do bendy as well as it used to.

Can anyone here tell what species I'm looking at?

Another really remarkable set of images, Paul. That bejeweled harvestman is quite nice. And the stick insect. And, well all of them. The extended jaws on those ant mimic jumpers - I just don't get that, but it must really work for them.

Very nice set.

Spiny millipedes. Ah, so that's how they manage it ...

The Narosa and the spiderlings shots are extra nice.

Even by your (quite high) standards, Kurt, this is an impressive group of images. All are very fine, and the top three, for me, especially. I am struck by the adaptations of the bark spider that you captured so well.

Nice set. Recognized the scolopendra from one of your flickr postings. That's quite an interesting eye arrangement they have (per bottom image).

All amazing. That springtail is certainly something different. Also, I didn't know that flies could get ticks too.
