[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was walking in the pasture and saw this yellow flower and great monster. The monster is spider »Pisaura mirabilis« with her egg sac. She'll hold this egg sac in her chelicerae and beneath her sternum. Soon she'll select some vegetation and place the sac ther and cover it with a 'tent' of silk and stand guard. This is her nursery and that's where the common name originates from.

Hope you like it. Comments and critques are appreciated.
