*monster with 8 eyes*
Hi Denis, I love spiders and today I'm being spoiled! Great capture of this Nursery web 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.
Very well done. Good details and colours. I'd like to have seen the whole spider here but I still think it's great.
Thanks for posting.
