Striped Lynx Spider (Oxyopes salticus)
A Striped Lynx Spider I saw in some weeds a couple months ago. I had a bit of a hiatus in posting photos to JungleDragon but mainly due to me trying to find ways to photograph plants in an aesthetically pleasing way, looking at photos online for inspiration. In addition to this, I am also trying to photograph birds I have no good photos of such as the Tropical Kingbird, White Eyed Parakeets, Blue and Yellow Macaw and Magnificent Frigatebird.
''Oxyopes salticus'' is a species of lynx spider, commonly known as the Striped Lynx Spider, first described by Hentz in 1845. Its habitat tends to be grasses and leafy vegetation; grassy, weedy fields, and row crops.
