I found this spider clinging to the side of the pool today, so I got the net and fished it out. I tapped it out onto the lawn. At the time, I didn’t realize her bumpy back looked that way because she was carrying baby spiders. I’ve been told this is a wolf spider. I only had my iPhone with me instead of a proper camera, so the image is a little bit fuzzy.
