These (except last 2) are all over my backyard. they are one of my favorite spiders. Even though many wolf spiders are poisonous, these are harmless. They are all over finding for preys and for mating.. I can't wait to photograph them with their egg sack on their backs!
they are though good runners and also very shy. It was a pain to let them stopped.. ;)

lookagain Wow!! Awesome shots, Ricky! One time I was at my sister's and one got into her house just by the front door. It was so scary and we didn't know what it was....she started smashing it with a boot and suddenly we saw all these teeny bugs crawling around next to the spider. I looked it up later, found it was a wolf spider and the "teeny bugs" were her babies.

Very hard to shoot them it seems. Like no. 4 aerial view :-)

ArtBee Wow Ricky! Exceptionally good shots! You certainly don't have arachnophobia at all. I think I'll need to go back to therapy after seeing these extreme closeups.....whoa

????? Wonderful. There was something similar to this living near my porch. I think it was catching bugs drawn to my light.

Latecomer I don't like them at all. The spiders that is, not the pictures.
