    Edit. I looked it up, and most spiders have eight eyes, but there are species with fewer eyes, and some with no eyes at all.
    A spider with no eyes?

    Would that be a spder?

    Some creature..
    An insect - with wings - and a top shell shaped like aircraft wings with a trailing tail. Cant even guess what it is ,
    but i got this shot on the paving outside my door - to the naked eye It looked like a thorn
    that was just lying around (roughly 3mm in size)..... until i saw it move (a sort of flutter/vibration)
    - had to take a very very close look to realise that it was an insect: used the 35mm and really close to get this shot.


    At times it would sort of turn turtle and would be unable to do anything but kick its legs and try to get back to the
    upright position (that's how i realized that the top structure was a somewhat hard/rigid shell.

    chances are that this "thorn" bites when attacked
