Lots of arachnids in the caves. Here are a few with more to come.

Are those two little dots his eyes? Would he be the same color outside the cave?

Yes, those are his eyes. Unlike spiders, which generally have eight eyes (there are exceptions), Harvestmen generally have two obvious eyes right out there in the middle of the cephalothorax (the fused head and mid-body of such things. Think of an ant, with three distinct parts, having the first two combined).

I like watching Daddy Long Legs. I haven't seen many this summer.
