Green Lynx Spider

It was heavy mist on that morning, when I found this Lynx spider holding on a winger termite. I would not have spotted the spider if not for the termite, it was so camouflaged. The dew formation of the plant attracted me first and that lead to the drama in nature.

Hi nagaraj,
more than the camouflage, let me tell you that you have done a great job with the dew and the little fur on the plants. Amazing shot, well done.
