Wolfy In The Sun


Wolf Spider (Pardosa sp.) – These furry critters just love to hang around in the sun. Lots of these around at the moment. Double-click image to get even closer … if you really wanna.

  1. It was exceptionally cool to see the enlarged view of your wolf spider, Pete. By coincidence I photographed a wolf spider yesterday that someone in a spider group in Facebook identified as Tigrosa georgicola. I will probably post a photo tomorrow or the day after. As you know, some folks really like spiders and others are creeped out or frightened of them–there seems to be no middle group.
