Waiting for the kill I did not notice this Lichen Huntsman Spider (Pandercetes celatus) at all!  It has such amazing camouflage that allows it to catch prey.  I only noticed it as the flashlight gave way to its shadow.  Geotagged,India,Pandercetes celatus,Winter,nature,spider,wildlife Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro
