  1. Excellent! Congratulations. It is a very stunning picture. Awesome!

    - N.

    1. I totally agree with you and this picture certainly deserves what it got. This is the best picture by far featuring a wolf spider that I have ever seen in my life.

    2. Thank you Michael. This little wolf spider posed for me for about 15 minutes. I've got dozens of poses. He was just waving his little abdomen and turning all around and just a delight.

  2. Thank you MG and N. This little wolf spider posed for a good five minutes and spun some thread during the posing. Glad I got one of him pointing west.

    Thank you too for keeping on looking. It keeps me looking too.
