Green Lynx Spider

This big guy (or going from the size more likely gal) was in TN over the Labor Day weekend. There are bugs in the flower underneath it which I imagined it was about to eat. I've seen lots of spiders in the field next to the house here. Most are too indistinct to figure out what they are with the Audubon Society Field Guide in hand but one that is distinct and I recognize from seeing a lot in the mountains in Japan is the Black-and-Yellow Argiope. I've heard that Brown recluses are also not uncommon around here which is quite unsettling. Ren is getting lots of practice learning the sign for spider.
