Camel Spider

Well pictured is the famous camel spider known by many different names. Also known as the sun scorpion and wind scorpion. I found this camel spider in my backyard 2 years ago. This camel spider was a major pain to photograph. This spider was only around 1 inch long but it was extremely fast! I had to chase this spider around to photograph it. Here in New Mexico, USA I find these around once per year. Since they are somewhat difficult to photograph, I do not get that many good pictures of camel spiders.
