These are not very good or "artistic" macro shots ... but they were the best 2 photos I could do in a high wind ... right before a downpour ...

Thanks Linda and Bas.

Never seen a Green Lynx prey on a lizard before!

Very interesting shots.

Does this spider ambush it's prey as opposed to catching it in a web ?

Thanks for the comments, all.

Yes, Ed, the Green Lynx is one of the most effective "ambush" predators I see in Florida ... they will capture wasps 5x their size (and seize them right behind the head), praying mantises 5x their size, other spiders (including each other!) ... and, now, apparently they also prey on vertebrates :shock:
