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.
