This lovely spider sat in our driveway and patiently allowed me to take as many pictures as I wished without so much as twitching. I am guessing it must be a type of wolf spider- it was quite large- but would love to know more.
We agree that this impressive spider is a Wolf Spider, and we believe it might be one of the Burrowing Wolf Spiders in the genus Geolycosa based on photos posted to BugGuide. Perhaps one of our readers will write in with a comment confirming or refuting our identification.
Your photos are quite beautiful.
Thank you- of all the days to get a lucky shot I am glad it was this one. I will now be watching all the little holes near our house with more interest this year; maybe I will get to see one in residence. Thanks for the help!
