Wolf Spider with a full brood

By barrywebb  
Another Wolf Spider, this mother has the entire brood of spiderlings on her back. Wolf Spiders are incredibly numerous and are nearly always seen at ground level and can be found in every garden, wood or meadow. This one went scuttling by when I was weeding my onion bed in the garden. Many thanks to Pamela, Carole, Bill, Roy, Mike, Ron, and Tony for the UA's on the last Wolf Spider shots.

A superb spider image Barry, The detail showing all those babies is so good it's scary. I don't like to think, I have them in my garden! Pam

They are completely harmless Pam. Just look at those lovely little eyes and nice hairy legs! WinkSmile

Quite an image with all the details so sharp enough to stop you going into the garden. Its eyes seem to be looking at you which is even more off-putting! A superb study of this spider.
