Dog Days Spider Fest #5

It takes green lynx spiders the better part of 11 months to grow to maturity from eggs. The females lay eggs in September. So, I know it's the Dog Days of summer when I see these hunting spiders--probably my favorite spiders--stalking around the bush-tops in either their spectacular late youth or just acheived adulthood. Here's one of this year's few peucetia viridans hanging out on the top of an artemisia, which is flowering nicely this summer.
