Harvestmen do not build webs, they hunt on foot.

This is a harvestman, a unique arachnid often mistaken for a spider. However with fused body regions and a single pair of eyes, they stand apart from true spiders. Known colloquially as "daddy longlegs" or "shepherd spiders," they're fascinating subjects for photography. Spotting them in the evening, when temperatures drop, can make for easier photography, as they're less active.
