He starts to get agitated because of the stick (I promise I didn't hurt him, too beautiful) and climbs up on the brick foundation. First I get a good closeup, then back off so you can have a sense of perspective to see how BIG he is. My pulse was up, cause all I could think of was 'get this right Bill, the POTNers won't beleive it!:lol:

The eye arrangement is more like that of a nursery web spider than that of a wolf spider, specifically Dolomedes vittatus. (external link) Nice shots!!

Good shots Bill, agree that I don't think it's a Wolf spider, but probably a nursery, eye arrangement doesn't look quite right. I woke up this morning and went to make my bed with a nice surprise - a largish male wolf spider ;) (around 10cm in diameter, including legs). Rescued it and took it outside.

LOL, I don't think I'd be calling 10 cm as "largish." I'd probably be screaming that some giant bird-eating spider was about to attack me!
