Survival of the fittest
Hi guys,
I check your site daily. I find it endlessly fascinating! I found this struggle between the yellow jacket and some sort of spider going on this morning on my barbed wire fence. Can you identify the spider? I don’t normally see such light-colored spiders. Thanks for your help.

Hi Susan,
Your spider, the Green Lynx Spider, was our featured Bug of the Month for November. We are especially fond of these hunting spiders that do not build webs, preferring instead to leap at flying insects. In our garden, they frequently perch on flowers like roses and daisies, and the coloration of the spider blends with the foliage of the plants. Thanks for sending us your awesome Food Chain image.
