A mother's love

Yesterday, I spotted this ground crab spider and her egg sac on a black-eyed Susan. Then I peered closer. Some of her spiderlings had already emerged! I also noticed that, when I moved, she'd turn and stretch out her front legs toward me, as if to scare me. I could sense that she wanted me to know that she was NOT going to let me hurt her little ones. Or ELSE! Some spider mamas are just amazing.
