Goodbye, Mom Editor's Pick   "Goodbye, Mom"
"Goodbye, Mom"

Green Lynx
Peucetia viridans

One of hundreds of Green Lynx instars seems to linger on its mother's leg for a final "Goodbye" prior to "ballooning" away on a light breeze.
At this stage the mother will crawl away and die having completed her one-year life cycle.

The thumbnail flashed by and I knew instantly that this was going to be a new Green Lynx life cycle shot. They are always stunning.
