Congrats Tom, your awesome capture is our spotting of the day! Female wolf spiders carry their egg sacs with them everywhere, and when the eggs hatch the babies immediately scuttle up onto her abdomen and ride there until they are ready to begin feeding.

Thanks for all the nice comments! I'm just glad she didn't move and run at me while I took the close-up of her face, since I had to get real close in front of her.
