Laurie Sheppard, 2017 – “I live in New England four months of the year but I can still be a part of BPTMN every month because of the efforts of the chapter’s BOD. I may not see people in person very often but I still feel welcome when I do.”

Female Green Lynx Spiders have a very unusual quality – they can change their body color to match their surroundings. The transformation takes several days. The color of both sexes often fades late in the season so whether the color on our spider mother was changed to match her location or is simply a natural fading late in the season is unknown.
