Eric
I wonder if he and his kin would be offended to learn that his name is We Evil? But it seems to suit very well. I get the impression he is only a few mm long, judging by the size of the leaf. Is this a multi-image merge picture? His feet and body are sharp but the legs in-between seem less so. Anyway, Very nice to meet you Mr We Evil, tell me, how do you avoid getting stung?

Thanks Eric. You're right they are quite small, but they are probably getting on for 10mm. This picture is a straight macro (no merging) - that's why the front portion is so out of focus: the usual problems of macro depth of field. If you look in this photo of a similar species, you can clearly see the stingers on the nettle leaf. I think they just walk around them!
