A few weeks back I took a trip out to Iona Beech to look for the Tufted Duck that had been reported from the sewage ponds. Since it was a beautiful sunny day, I also took some time with my macro lens to photographing some of newly emerged arthropods.I found this female wolf spider hunting among the beach logs. I have this spider up at BugGuide if you can help me with the genus.
