The red thingy is a velvet mite I think. Also the crane fly I believe is actually a snakefly

Thanks! And man, there are so many "-fly" out there, I would have never thought that would be called snakefly, who even thought of that, I mean, with its long neck it looks more like a crane.
Ikr. Apparently they use that extended thorax to hunt for prey. They use it like a snake, rearing up and then striking down. Also they aren't flies, and I believe are related to lacewings.

Well, I've been on a walk, which can only mean one thing. Photos.

This funky looking bug.

Now, that's clever!

To hang carelessly underneath a leaf...

Honestly, no idea what this is.

The spider is actually a harvestman which is not actually a spider since it doesn't produce silk, but it is still an arachnid.

And the one you said was a 'walking leaf' is actually a leaf-footed bug (Coreidae) although I could be wrong.
