Here are some info on these Lynx Spiders:

"They have keen eyesight and are agile hunters during the day, deftly leaping and running on low shrubs in active pursuit of their prey.
Classification: Family Oxyopidae, Lynx Spiders.
Habitat: Shrubs in gardens and secondary forests.
Female: 7-9 mm.
Male: 6-7 mm.
Distribution: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar.

Lynx Spiders are easily recognised by their eye arrangement in which six of the eight eyes form a hexagon. Their long legs are armed with nearly erect spines.The egg-sac is usually attached to a twig and is guarded by the mother until the spiderlings hatch."

Took these today:

Appreciate any comments!

Incredible shots. I've never seen a spider like that. I never hope to in person. Looks like the moth is suffering from the insect version of red-eye (or yellow-eye in this case) in #2.
