Arachtober the Thirteenth

A baby juvenile striped lynx, in what seems to be a very common pose for this species. (If you look at the adult female posted yesterday, you'll see the same pose from a different angle.) Span across those outstretched legs is 2, maybe 3 mm.


There were LOTS of these little guys in the vicinity of where I took yesterday's post several weeks ago. There were also two adult females. One was on the same plant as the one I posted yesterday, and I'm tempted to think she's the same specimen as the one in yesterday's photo. A few plants over, there was a rather deflated and worn-out looking female--who I'm tempted to think was perhaps the mom of these little guys. But I don't if that's reasonable--I have no idea how long it takes these little guys to grow to this size.
