I'm not sure of the technical name of this spider but in N.C. we refer to them as wolf spiders.
I would have gotten closer but I just had my 60mm on and I was concerned about it jumping in my face :lol:
I can't get over the amount of babies this poor mom has to lug around.

Wow, great capture. I'm a bit arachnophobic, if I saw that I'd probably run away screaming before I took a cool picture.

If it weren't for this pic I wouldn't have known that spiders do this with their young. This reminds me of an episode of Andromeda where the enemy mother ship was composed of a bunch of individual baby ships that all came apart and attached to the Andromeda once the mother ship got within range (to pierce the hull and kill the crew). Or was that some Star Trek episode involving the Borg? Maybe this is where the inspiration came from. I'd hate to have one of these come under my tarp in the middle of the woods some night. Yikes! I hope I can forget about this one, I don't carry a tent with a sewn-in floor in it anymore! :-) Are any of these in the Northwest USA?
