Green Spider



Found this in my yard.  It's a Green Lynx Spider.
If you're shuddering at these pictures, you're not the only one! 
This spider was about an inch long!  Pretty though, in it's own way. 

I'm now selling some fun gifts with this spider on it
at my Texifornia Zazzle shop here.

  10. Really cool spider! I love how you can even see the details of the hairs on his legs. I don't think we have those here. Too bad.

  12. One of the prettiest spiders I've ever seen. It almost look like a cross between a grass hopper and a spider.

  13. Lucky you! This is one of my favorite spiders. You have a gravid or pregnant female. Keep a watch and you will find her with an egg sac soon and very protective. I had several females in my garden last year at this time and watched them for two months. Had quite a few this summer but I think my green anole lizards ate them all. : (
