Here's a challenge for you to show off your best pair, or four, or six or eight legs, (or maybe more), which you've captured in nature. Are they tall skinny legs of an ostrich, short fat legs of a hippopotamus, the hairy legs of a spider, or perhaps the delicate swaying legs of a praying mantis just waiting to pounce on its next meal. Macro and close-ups welcome. NO humans, pets, or birds which have lost their freedom. Size of your entry: 1,600 pixels on the longer side.
