Remember that beautiful Green Lynx I photographed a couple days ago (you can just scroll down a bit to see the picture)? Well, as I went outside this afternoon to take a picture of this slightly-less-beautiful spider that was napping outside our window (UPDATE: This hairy spider is a Platycryptus undatus [a tan jumping spider] according to BugGuide.net)…
…I noticed the aforemention Green Lynx spider on the ceiling of our porch — and she was much skinnier than the last time I saw her! Notice the sticky-looking egg sac?
Incidentally, it wasn't difficult to confirm that this Green Lynx was exactly the same Green Lynx we saw the other day. Did you happen to notice that the first picture I took showed a spider with only seven legs? Count this mommy-spider's legs and you'll get only seven legs as well, so there's no doubt both pictures are of the same spider.
I'm sure there's not many of you who are all that interested in spiders. But my kids are, so they want me to chronicle the birth/hatching of these Green Lynx babies as much as possible. It should be gross disgusting entertaining interesting!
