[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A lynx spider on a leaf. It was too dark to get a good shot. So I shone a torch light on the spider and took the picture.

Lynx spiders are active agile hunters, who hunt by runing after their prey, and hence the name. The spikes on the legs and elongated face are typical of lynx spiders.

This specimen was quite big, as compared to others I have seen, around 2cm in diameter (from tip of one leg to its diametrically opposite one).

Hello Victor, Where were you? not to be seen around. This is a nice view of the spider with superb focus Ganesh

Hallo Victor
Great photography. This Linx spider looks like the jelly-rubber kind of plastic animals or insects we used to buy at the toy shops as kids. Stunning image with clear details. The spikes on this spider is so obvious, I will be able to count them if I wanted to. How wonderful is this site to share images, compare them and learn about all the different types of a kind. What a great planet with strange beauties. Your image of the spider is worlds apart from my image of a spider I posted a while ago, but they both remain spiders. Thanks for sharing. Much appreciated.
Kind regards
