Description

Lynx spider standing on a sphinx moth in dormitory resident garden. How odd and fascinating! Pictures are shown in chronological order: first is with the sunlight shining through, making it hard to see the spider somewhat; but when I moved my hand in front of the light to make it easier to see, the spider reacted to the sudden change in light and moved a bit, as in the second picture; moving my hand again resulted in the third picture; moving my hand a third time caused the spider to move to the underside of the moth wing (no picture). The moth never seemed to react.

Description from Wikipedia

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 least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behaviour.
