Arachnids

Part of Buglife Bug Photography Awards 2021

Open Judging Results
Brief

Arachnids include the full range of spiders and harvestmen, as well as scorpions, ticks and mites. They all have eight legs, and live in many habitat types, from the water-loving Fen Raft spider, to the sky-bound Cloud-living spider. We'd also love to see some great pictures of spider webs.

Highly magnified imagery, such as close-ups of faces and body parts, can be submitted to this category, but is more likely to excel in the 'Extreme Close-Ups’ category.

The 'Arachnids' category is sponsored by Luminar AI. Win lots of great products by Luminar, plus £250 cash for the category winner.
