A macro image of a female Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans), hanging upside down and camouflaged in the green grass, waiting to throw her strands of silk around whatever prey happens to wander by. This is a beautiful spider, with jade-like translucency of the legs and carapace, a colorful green, ruby, and white pattern on her abdomen, and black spots all along her legs. She's set against a soft background of grass stalks punctuated with the yellow glow of out-of-focus wildflowers.
