Sunday Bugs: Wolf Spider & Spiderlings

There are some wolf spiders (genus Pardosa) living in my backyard.  A few days ago I saw a female carrying an egg sac.  A couple of days after that I saw her with a teeming mass of just-hatched spiderlings clustered on her back, a common thing among mom wolf spiders.  I think they're kinda cute, in the way that all tiny things are cute because they're tiny.

Egg sac.
