Very interesting shot. I knew that some species of frogs and scorpions carry their hatchlings on their backs but it is the first time I see this behaviour on a spider.

Great stuff. Isn't nature amazing. Which wizard of evolution would have thought of allowing all these spiderling to get this close to mum.

Very nice picture of this spider with its babies on its abdomen. Excellent POV, DOF and sharpness. Great detail.
Good natural colours.

This is truly amazing, Art.
You are justified in making the image bigger because we are able to see the young one's on their mothers's back quite clearly.
This is a shot of its own kind for which you deserve to be congratulated.
TFS and regards.

Very interesting shot.
You sure was right to cut the legs. You wouldn't have get enough details on the spiderlings otherwise.
It reminds me the shot of someone else. Scorpio with scorpiolings, here:
Thanks for sharing
