Harvestman (order Opiliones) in grass at dusk. Members of the arachnid family, harvestmen are distinct from spiders in that they have only one body section as opposed to two. They are omnivorous and eat a wide range of foods including dead matter, fruit and small insects. They secrete a foul smelling liquid as a defence mechanism. Photographed in the UK.
