Since I was a kid I always thought the eyes of the Daddy-Longlegs were pretty neat looking. Now I can get a real good look at them and yup... they are still pretty "neat"!

It is an arthropod (not a spider), and it has just two eye. But they are positioned in that interesting little spine covered "turret".

Magnificent!

Are those holes in the front the breathing openings? stigmata.

I would say they are beyond perfect IMO. They have so much detail and sharpness Charles. You take the macro world and bring it up to lifesize.

Wonderfull pictures, I cant beleive i missed them, lovely colour and lighting, and what detail. The jaws of these things are very interesting too, they have tow sets of pincers instead of spider like mandibles, very like tailless scorpions, to which i think they are about equally related.
