[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders do. They tend to tolerate members of their own species more than most spiders do, and at least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behaviour.

Wow Ram, this is one gorgeous spider!!
Don't know if I have ever thought of a spider as being beautiful, but the unusual turquoise color in this particular species is awesome. Tac sharp focus and displaying excellent detail. The tiny needle-like hairs covering it's legs actually look pretty intimidating themselves, almost like little spears. Great work!!

What a pic!!!!! Very strange spider and very well taken with these fantastic details and great colors.
have a nice day
