Nursery Web Spider (female)

By sferguk
Found in the back garden. The female carries her eggs in a ball shaped, pea-sized sack with her. Just before the babies hatch she builds a silk tent and puts them inside for protection.

Well caught! I've seen a few of these, but they don't half move when they realise they've been spotted!! You've caught some lovely details here, the focus spot on!
