I see there are plenty of photos in the guide of this common spider, but I thought I'd add a portrait:)

Moved from Eastern Variations.

Love at First Sight
Found my first Green Lynx recently and immediately fell in love. Awesome shot of the pedipalps. I'm guessing this is a female; but, I've never (knowingly) seen an image of the male. Thanks for sharing.

Just Awesome!

Wow! What Personality!
Great photo Tony. Both artistic and informative.

Thanks for the kind words Bob and Lynette, I like these close-ups, it shows the remarkable anatomy of these cool critters:)
