[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Captured this action shot on the wall of my house porch today evening. The light was poor, so used fill flash.

Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders do. They tend to tolerate members of their own species more than most spiders do, and at least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behaviour.

Hello Ram, your neighbour today.. and after a long time! :) Despite of the poor light, it still is a clear view. Yes, these spiders are hard to give a species name.. until and unless much expertise in the field. Not a bad click, of course.. and I loved the 3D effect due to those shadows on the wall. TFS the moment!
Keep posting.
