Seen in a residential building. Fairly big one.
Found this spider by the edge of a stream. She was waiting for the hapless victim - a struggling insect, a small fish or a tadpole.
There were many Water Striders( Gerridae) all around her. I was eagerly waiting for the her to catch a Water Strider which would sometimes come very close to her. But she didn't seem to be interested in them. I waited for more than 30 mins before I had to move on.
Maybe next time :-)
When I saw this my first impression was it is a caterpillar. On close watch I found this spider is making a caterpillar impression by sitting on the both edged of this silk roll. This is on a bonsai ficus tree.
I am sorry for this poor images.
Spider feeding on a fly
Looks like this spider had a scrumptious meal. She was covered with scales from a Moth. :-)
Lynx spiders are the members of the family Oxyopidae. They all are hunting spiders that spend their lives on plants, flowers and shrubs. They approach their prey slowly then pounce, hence the common name Lynx spiders.
