In addition to the insects, spiders thrive on the hot weather too. Even some of the common Jumping Spiders are colourful.
I think the prettiest ones are the Lynx Spiders (Oxyopidae).
The Lynx Spiders usually have long legs, and like most of the Jumping Spiders, they are hunters and do not make webs.
However, their eyesight is not as good as that of Jumping Spiders but their eyes are located around the head giving them close to 360 degrees of view.
The long legs enable them not only to run fast but also to jump on prey like a cat, which earned them the common name, Lynx Spiders. Very often they can catch prey much bigger than themselves, such as this Wasp Moth.
However, the most impressively sized spiders have to be the Golden Silk orb-weaver Spider.
In addition to the size, their gangetic webs are so big and strong that some are used for fishing. It is not a surprise that butterflies are regularly on their menu.
Occasionally, however, spiders can fall victim to tiny ants too.
