THE HUNT

Variable lynx spider, Oxyopes variabilis

I found this variable lynx spider eating its lunch on one of the lavenders in our garden. I used two macro extension tubes – they enable you to photograph things in extraordinary detail – which allowed me to capture this unusual sighting in an impactful way.
