Wolf Spider  (two photos)

ballooning wolf spider
I found this young wolf spider just as it ballooned onto some grass on Antelope Island.
I think it's done some modeling before. Nice pose! The picture below shows
him shooting out silk for ballooning.  Carol Davis, 6-30-2011

wolf spider
I see wolf spiders all over Utah in the spring ballooning their way across the state. This one
was especially beautiful and bright-eyed.  He's a little washed out in the photo from the
brightness of the sun.  Carol Davis 6-30-2011
