Why hang out and let life come to you? Although I don’t recommend it for people, the approach does seem to work for other species.
A green lynx spider (Peucetia viridans) resting atop a leaf in hopes of ambushing some unaware prey. Taken at the family farm in East Texas.
A male cicada-killer wasp (Sphecius speciosus) holding his territory as he waits for females to pass by. Taken outside my front door.
A green anole (Anolis carolinensis) grabbing some rays on a warm rock shrouded by foliage. (A wider view can be seen here.) Taken at the end of the private drive leading from my home to the lake park.
