Wolf Spider with Egg Sac
At the risk of becoming boring, here's another Wolf Spider, this time the right way up! This is uncropped and absolutely the closest I ever want to get to one of these.
I had to keep reminding myself what a good, protective mother she is, and that I'M invading HER world.
She'd been reclining against the stem when I arrived. I moved a leaf, she stood up, ready for flight. I took half a dozen shots and left her to bask in the sun.
