A Lynx Spider Female, guarding her egg sac. It will not budge from the egg sac and kept still. I later read about it that they will not move when protecting their egg sac.
Seen at a small forest near a farm.
Lynx spiders, in spite of being largely ambush hunters, are very speedy runners and leapers, alert and with good vision. Except when defending egg purses, many tend to flee rapidly when approached by predators or large creatures such as humans.
