Arthropod Class Arachnida (Mites and Spiders)

These occasionally aquatic creatures are not known to be particularly important to trout, but I have a few neat pictures.

Mites are quite beautiful when viewed with magnification. Some get large like the middle photo which is of a red mite about the size of a pea.

I have these Arthropod Order Araneae (Spiders) all over my property last weekend in West Kill NY. Are they poisonous? Do they live in the creek? Are they coming out of the creek to hatch because each one had a wed and egg sacks inside. They are big! Any thing interesting or warnings about these, I'd like to know.
