Default Portrait of an expecting Wolf spider

This made me a little jumpy, I was laying on the ground with her about 2 inches from the lens. When she would scury it sure looked like she was headed for my face at around 200 miles an hour of course when i'd panic and pull the camera back, she'd have only moved like an inch to the left or right.

G'day Bil

Well done ... it's funny how such a small animal can give us big-kids the terrors when we're so close to them [happened to me on many occasions]

Regards, Phil

That is one great shot, I would hesitate to get that close.

Nice one. I think wolf spiders are some of the best looking overall in the spider family.

These pics are from a few years ago when they were building my house (bathtub). Just to show what happens when that big eggsack hatches. (it looks like they are eating her, but she was just carrying them. When I transported her out to the woods they all came off in the cup and crawled back up on her when I let them all go)

Excellent shots and nothing could be creepier than a spider covered in spiders.

The first shot is great, and your explanation on how the seem so big when the move towards you is just the same I feel when trying to get a picture of them.

But your second series is ... W W W O W W W

That's something I really would like to find (my wife and daughter not).

Great Work

Ronny
