Harvestman on leaf

Noticed this on a bush (also nameless) in my back garden around 4pm. It has very long legs and so flat it seemed camoflagued. When I moved the leaf it stood up, either to warn me away or to strike a nice pose for the camera, who knows :)

Thank you! I wondered if it was that, but the back pointed end looked like it might be separated from the main body so I wasn't sure. I'd never seen one before.
