I Found this spider on a trip to the south of France, when I first saw the spider I thought it was being attacked by ants, On closer inspection I realized that they were baby spiders on her back. I have never seen anything like this, I posted this on the Panasonic forum and guys there think it might be a wolf spider

Great shots, like no.1. She (the spider) must be very tired by the end of the day:lol:

I thought they were ants attacking the spider, It was only after I started taking photos I noticed they were baby spiders

Way to go Lello. That's a first for me too - great capture. I wonder if this is a way for it to distribute the young.

Wow, great shots there. A person won't find that very often.

Would appear to be a Wolf Spider - right number of eyes, and they do carry the eggs and the young on their bags (well the egg is attached to the spinnerets).

Apparently some species can grow quite big and give a painful bite! Good job you didn't move her.
