Lynx Spiders

Family Oxyopidae

What a cool family of spiders.  Lynx spiders are very athletic and quite good looking, sort of like your's truly.  They're awfully fun to watch as they run and jump from leaf to leaf...yes, a very agile critter.  I often find them at night on outer leaves of my citrus trees and azaleas.  On occasion, I may find one or two on my fig tree as well.  Check out your shrubs at night, you'll probably see one.
