Republic Poly Trail

A quiet walk down the deserted path once again. Decided to venture further in this time, and turned back only when I stumbled into the paths of a pack of stray barking dogs. They didn't seem to like me so I slowly retreated. >.< Lynx Spider (Oxyopidae) - DSC_8011 #1 Lynx Spider guarding its nest. I'm seeing this almost everywhere I go!!
