Wolf Spider

I rescued her from the pond.

She was as - calmly as she could - trying to keep her babies from drowning. Wolf spiders carry their babies on their back for a while. One by one her babies - as they are ready - will leave their mamas back and venture out into the world.

Such is the way of motherhood - parenthood.

We carry them as long as they need us and then we have to let them grow on their own.
