Their underside is brown, with wavy borders and has a dark band running lengthwise. The legs differ significantly in their length, colour and shape, with those of the females are beige, brown or yellow-brown coloured, while those of the males appear darker in colour. Whilst the first, second and fourth pairs of legs are very long, the third pair of legs is relatively short. This pair helps the spider to hold onto thin twigs or grass when resting, while the other pairs of legs are stretched out. There are frequently dark spots and rings at the ends of the legs. |
|The legs of honey bees are segmented, the hind legs play an important role in pollen collection. The first sector of the hind legs is greatly widened. On the inner side of this, is a thick line of hair which the bee uses to brush off pollen remains. Pollen is transported to the hive in "baskets" made out of an arrangement of hairs, also located on the hind legs. Like all bees, the honey bee has mouth parts, which can lap up sweet plant secretions (nectar and honeydew). Nectar is transported in part of the stomach called the "honey stomach". Other bees on the same level in the hive are supplied w...|

...e very long, broad curled in light brown or reddish brown, and are, in resting position, posited at an angle and bent forward. Due to this these spiders resemble crabs with large claws. They are able to walk sideways. In the males, the first pair of legs can be three to five times longer than the last pair. The two rear pairs of legs are uniformly light beige. The pink females, often have dark grey stripes on their legs.
|These spiders have 2 claws on their heads, hence the name "two- clawed-spider". The abdomen is brightly coloured. Crab spiders have 2 very long pairs of front legs. In the males, the first pair of legs can be five times longer than the hind pair of legs. The two pairs of front legs are slightly bent in resting position and face forward. These creatures limbs also enable them to walk sidewards and as a result of this they bear a striking resemblance to crabs. |
|Their long and powerful legs are characteristic (thus: long-legged flies), and appear modified in some species. The legs are stretched out in resting position. These long, powerful legs enable them to run for long periods? and to jump long distances. Some species, walk sideways like beach crabs. The males have a distinctive, hairy brace apparatus on their abdomens.
Long-legged flies prefer to be in proximity to water. W...|

Additional rows from irregular posited series of points appear in the space between the rows from regular posited points. The legs of the beetle are yellowish, yellow-brown or rust-colored. The tarsi appear reddish brown to dark brown in colour.
The hind legs have long hairs that aid in swimming. The water scavenger beetle prefers to live in and on smaller bodies of waters with sufficient sunlight. They are often found (as adults or larvae) floating on the surface of salt water or brackish water (mixt...|
...alt water or brackish water (mixture of river and sea water). The adults eat rotten plant debris. They surface for air head first and trap air to breath under their wing covers (elytra) and "row" themselves along by alternating the hind legs, wiggling from side to side as they swim. Their eyesight is not very developed. Therefore, it is possible for the beetles to land on? reflective surfaces (wet or shiny car roofs, windows, etc.) having confused them with open waters.

Andrena are counted among the bees which collect by their legs, because the pollen - with the aid of their legs - gets located to their leg hairs. On the sides of the propodeum (the first abdominal segment), the female has a "basket" (made from her hairs) used to transport the pollen to the nest.|

They do not use theit mouthparts (at the male as genitals) for chewing their food. Four pairs of legs are attached to the prosoma and each leg comprises six to seven segments, which in addition to the hairs on their legs build an important sensor system.|
|...each a body length of up to 18 mm. The body of the blow-fly is compact and often shiny metallic blue, green or golden-green in colour. In addition to their well developed compound eyes and antennae, the blow flies use their sense of touch (feet and legs) for guidance. The smell sensors are also located on the legs and feet.|

The abdomen has a black base colour and a striking marking on its surface in yellow, white, red and brown. The legs of Helophilus pendulus are yellow, with black and red sequences. The hind legs are broader. |
