I’m guessing it’s an Orb Weaver of some sort. Just looking for more info.
This is most likely Peucetia viridans; commonly called a green lynx spider. Widespread across North America, they will ambush and stalk prey. They prey on a variety of arthropods considered pests as well as beneficial ones. This one is female as males are considerably smaller with similar color patterns. I actually found one today in Texas and will make it my first contribution to the page.
That’s awesome, I can picture her stalking her prey. She was on my AC unit and when I mowed the other day I saw her on my gutter up high.
Aww… she needs a name.
We named the green tree frogs that frequent our deck, Carmen and Waldo. I take the toddler outside to look for their new hiding spot almost every afternoon.
I think Gypsy would be a good name for your pretty Lynx.
