You are right, this is not a spider, this creature -an arthropod, belongs to harvestmen (Opiliodes).
This is interesting macro showing good details of upper part of its body :)

nice shot of this really interesting creature you have captured here. i too thought a spider from the thumbnail preview, but doesnt look like one on the larger pic. certainly interesting though. nice focus and depth and detail. well done, TFS.

Merhaba Ersin Bey,
Basit gözlerin sırt sırta vermiş konumuna ve abdomen yapısına bakılırsa bence de bir "örümceksi" (Opilionid) makrosu bu, ama hiç bu kadar şişman, kısa ve kalın bacaklı opilionid görmemiştim, umarım bir yerlerden tam bir tanımlama gelir, biz de işin doğrusunu öğreniriz.

you show a very sharp and detailed picture of the harvestman's body and legs. Such pictures are rarely seen. I don't know whether reduction of the slight background noise will improve the picture substantially (perhaps I will try).
Best wishes, Peter

Nice picture of this spider with a catchy title. Good details at the back and around the head.

Thanks for writing your critique on my recent picture, Ersin. What a pleasure to hear from you again!
Though I am now rather erratic on TN, I think all of us miss you and your active participation. Still busy?
Your image of this insect you posted on the last day of January this year is very graphic and gives a sharp and clear view of its head, back and abdomen. The partial view of legs is also clear.
Thanks for sharing it and hope to see you regularly on TN soon.
