Wolf Spider


A really pretty Wolf Spider, different from the ones I usually see. About 1.5 cm in body length. Family Lycosidae.


Out hunting at night, he was climbing a street lamp to get to the insects at the top, but dropped to the ground when I started to photograph him. Semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
