Fishing Spider- Hygropoda sp. ♂ (?)

Found this large Pisaurid spider resting on a flashy lily leaf with his meal.


This type of spider, along with many other Nursery Web Spiders (Pisauridae), loves to lie waiting on the upper side of leaves for preys to pass by (usually during the evening and night); and will quickly dart underneath the leaves when disturbed.
