That looks like a tailless whip scorpion - here's a couple of comparable species -

Wow, must be a nice camera. My pics are always blurry when I try closeups. Good photo.
Thanks for sharing that :)

We used a Sony camera. Wow, you did like the photo; thank you :)
Based on the links that Darby posted about the related arachnids to the spider that we spotted, the spiders have structural relationship with one another, most specially the first one.

Do you do the "Macro" setting often depicted as a flower? That could greatly increase you phototaking abilities :)
