Fishing spider with nursery - Dolomedes scriptus - female

Fishing spider with nursery - Dolomedes scriptus - Female
St. Bruno, Quebec, Canada
August 15, 2015
A fishing spider, Dolomedes, but I'm not sure what one. I included this picture because it shows the mother guarding the offspring in their nursery. Even though these are often called nursery spiders very few of the photographs in the Bugguide actually show the nursery (the dark body hanging below the leaf and wrapped in web above the mother).
