Peucetia sp. the ‘Green Lynx’.
Oxyopidae (lynx spiders)
Larger than Oxyopes (11.8-21.6mm
females, 8.1-14.5mm males), and bright green with bright red spots and
legs paler green to yellow, it has long legs with long black spines.
Females attach an egg sac to a curled blade of grass or leaf, two or
three feet above ground, and then cling to the sac until death by
starvation or cold. Two species (longipalpis and viridans) occur in
Tulare Co., both fond of tall grasses (especially wild buckwheat) in
open fields.

Hola Paulo,
you captured this bizarre creature and its prey very well showing
the structural details very sharp. The focus is exact.
Colours are pleasant.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Paulo,
the scenery with this spiny spieder and the colourful prey is great. Technically you mastered the macro problems well: sharpness, DOF, composition, use of flashlight, background, crop, all perfect. My compliments
Best regards
