[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was out trimming branches when I noticed movement along the tree trunk. I looked down and saw this rather large Wolf Spider scurrying away in an odd manner. I then realized it was carrying an egg sack.

My camera was already handy since I had just used it earlier to photograph some butterflies. I then proceeded to photograph the spider at different angles in hopes of obtaining a decent image.

Wolf Spiders are ground dwellers when it comes to hunting and are usually nocturnal. Some species dwell in burrows with an entrance made of ringed silk and debris.

I will post another photo in a WS.

Was busy traveling last 2 weeks and did not get to TN, Ron.
This is a wonderful image of a Wolf Spider carrying an egg sack.
The darker BG highlights the subject very well.
