Cool! It looks very different from my spotting and I'm surprised to know how common these creatures actually are and how diverse they are as well. I've never seen them before so I learned something new today, thanks! :)

Yours is rather distinctive and quite pretty but you'll probably make a mistake if you try to identify it more closely. It does look like suborder = Eupnoi nd family = Phalangiidae.
I found a short legged one recently;

Thank you so much for the information and ID martinl. Being specific and finding the species of Harvestman would be difficult and I could be wrong, but I believe it could at least be narrowed down to the Eupnoi suborder.

The harvestman is an arachnid like spiders and scorpions but different from spiders having only one body section where spiders have two. They are usually found outdoors and often when farmers harvest their crops, therefore the name =) The daddy long legs, often found ndoors, is a spider
